What kind of cage do you have for it? I had a hamster that kept getting wet tail because I was keeping him in a mainly wire cage with a plastic bottom, and apparently it felt too insecure and kept getting wet tail. Once I moved him into an entire glass aquarium the bouts of wet tail stopped. Bin cages, glass aquariums, and the Habitrail Ovo would probably be the cages that make them feel the most secure. Really though, developing wet tail is one part stress, one part susceptibility. Some hamsters are just prone to it regardless of what you do. I had another hamster that had like 6 bouts of it throughout his entire life, which I consistently treated him with DriTail at the first signs, but what he did eventually die from was old age.
