Hello there, I am new here and I am just so lost on what to do with my hamster. I have a dwarf hamster, she is almost a year old now. And about 8 months ago she was a healthy happy hamster. She had a brother Fluffy and when he died she started losing her fur and has become very anti-social. I have tried everything I can think of. Now she is almost bald! I thought she had mites but no, tried changing her food, her cage, bedding. Cod liver oil, olive oil, vitamin drops. I am at a loss. she is very active. We have another dwarf hamster who is albino and she has had no problems what so ever. she has to be in a seperate cage since my other one, tried to kill her. Any help would be appreciated. I might just need to break down and go to the vet!

Sounds like nerves and stress ... you could try a fake friend like they do with male mice.

I would recommend taking her to the vet. Does her skin look puffed up? Is there any puss or ooze anywhere? Does she smell interesting?

Yeah the vet is always best she sounds depressed losing a cagemate is very hard.
