CPR on Hamster

Hi All.


I meant to post this when this happened 4 months ago...My b/f was watching TV and heard a strange noise coming from Patches our dwarf hamster. He went to check him and noticed he had trouble breathing He actually did CPR (mouth to nose)on him by breathing gently into his nose and he survived...we brought him to the vet the next day and they put him on oxygen..it turned out he had a abscess in his mouth he is OK now...

Adopt a Rodent from a rescue places instead of buying one at a pet store!

Oh my gosh... CPR on a hamster? I didn't know that was possible! I'm glad your little hammie made it! Stupid abscesses. My rattie girl is just finishing up healing from her abscess on her jaw. But inside the mouth?? Oh gosh that must have been horrible!

Wow! Glad he is ok!

I have seen my mom do CPR on a kitten before. Little guy fell in a bucket of water. She ended up saving him though.

I am glad your little guy is better now!
