WET TAIL DROPS ARE IDEAL FOR:
For HAMSTERS stressed by transport, new diet or excessive handling. Stress is believed to be the leading cause of diarrhea (wet-tail) in hamsters. Also suitable for mice, rats, gerbils, guinea pigs and similar small pets.
SYMPTOMS OF STRESS and ILLNESS MAY INCLUDE:
Obvious changes in behavior or physical appearance such as weight loss, hunched posture, hair coat that is ungroomed or "standing up", hamster sitting in one position with eyes squinted, lack of appetite, dehydration or diarrhea. The animal may not want to be handled and may show signs of depression or anxiety. Early intervention (before onset of diarrhea) offers the best chance for a cure.
Sick hamsters often have dry looking ears (a sign of dehydration) held back against the head (often with a folded look), and empty cheek pouches which give the face a thin, lean look. Any sign of a distended belly is a sign of digestive trouble that may be wet-tail in the advanced stages.
