11. Two dwarf hamsters had ingrown front teeth

Sunday Apr 3, 2016

It may be a coincidence but on Saturday and Sunday, I treated two hamsters with ingrown front teeth (video)  

Sunday. The lady decided to bring in 2 hamsters with swellings for consultation. One is 23 g, lethargic and very thin. It was dehydrated and has a big abscess below the chin.  This was the one with ingrown lower front teeth. The other is 40 g and has a nose bridge abscess.

Saturday.  A 4-month-old thin Syrian hamster has two upper front teeth ingrown into the hard palate.
