Are hamster bites dangerous?


Answer by  ToralDwivedi (606)

All animal bites including human bites are dangerous. Saliva of all animals including human beings contain rabies virus. Bites of all animals need treatment.


Answer by  John (9008)

A hamster bite is not especially dangerous. Any bite from any animal carries some risk of infection or disease, but hamster bites are no more risky than that of any other animal. You should, however, wash the bite and keep an eye on it.

No, they aren't. Just rinse the area, put a bit of antibiotic cream or antiseptic on it like any other cut, then cover with a bandaid.

Umm no, hamsters don't get rabies, they live indoors! For hamster bites, just clean the wound up and put a band-aid, that's all :)
