I do worry. I don't want to wake up one day and find the same mysterious thing has happened to Karot. I feel like there is more I can do, but I have no idea what!
I'm struggling to give her her medicine. she won't take it, or eat the food I put it on. So Should i just pick her up and put it in her mouth? It's only a weenie drop (Not even a drop, it's 0.2 in the syringe, you need to close an eye to even see it haha) she needs, so shouldn't drown her.
Giving medicine to a hamster is never easy, and yes, you may have to force her to take it. It's not forever, so she'll be okay. Just be thankful it's not a cat. Giving medicine to a cat is about as fun as getting a root canal.
