What could have caused a syrian hamster to die unexpectedly?


Answer by  boston003 (29)

There are several factors that could have caused your syrian hamster to die. Food poisoning, nose bleeding, diasese, or just old age. Hamsters do not have that long of a life span, so anything can really happen to them unexpectantly.

It could have been many types of illnesses or just old age. Hamsters do have quite a short lifespan. Only way to know is to get a necropsy. You have to keep the animal in the fridge (not freezer) and take it to a vet within a day or so.
