It sounds like she has a Bladder infection, she needs to go to a Vet asap. Chances are when she rolls, it affects her bladder and then she can't help but urinate on herself. If she is not drinking well and is moving as if it hurts to do so, she may have an infection in her bladder or kidney. She needs anti biotics made for small animals to help get over it. Dwarf Hamsters can live anywhere between 1-2 years and she is still young.

Thanks Lacrima. Even though not everything adds up, I really think I should take her to the vet. I will def. let you all know what happens and what it might be when we return.

She is diabetic. She is on a holistic herb medicine that just SMELLS SOOO BAD and she has learned how it tastes..

I thought I'd bathe a tiny mealworm in it to help her eat it, but the medicine KILLED the mealworm!! And needless to say, she did not eat that worm.

Having a heck of a time getting jiggles to drink the medicine though. I was provided with the smallest syringe (is that what it's called?) but Jiggles squirms!

She has hardly any flesh for me to pinch on her neck, but when I do that is the only way I can shove the thing in and give it to her. I sure hope this isn't causing her any more pain/dammage than she was in already!

And the fact that she had her blood taken.. Poor Jiggles.

The peeing problem is off and on. Until I get my paycheck and get her a bigger cage, I will continue to clean out her wet spots. I need to order a big bulk supply of bedding. I really like carefresh and sunseed.

The scruffing irritates them more than anything sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to make her feel better. It wont hurt her as long as you do not do it any longer than needed and support her bottom if you can

Thanks, I might have to have my boyfriend help me out because she's squirming a lot. she REALLY hates her medicine

But I have to say, she's looking better already.
