At pet smart I got bit by a hamster and it was bleeding it stopped now but I'm worried about germs can hamsters transmit diseases?

Yes, they can....that happened to me when I was little...I threw up all over the floor! :) Anyway, I'm sure you'll be fine...just clean it really good, use alcohol and keep it clean until the wound heals. Keep neosporin on it....

That's why most pet stores have rules. About not putting your fingers in the cages....

Yes. Any animal bite that breaks the skin has the potential to transmit disease or become infected.

Just wash it really good with soap and warm water and but a bandaid on it. You shouldn't have to worry about anything.
