What Causes Wet Tail in Hamsters?

Answer

Hamsters get wet tail due to too much handling, change in environment, being away from the mother, poor hygiene in the cage cleaning, change in diet, death of a tank mate, bacterial faecal to oral contact and surgery. Another name for the wet tail is diarrhoea and it is not from a medical diagnosis of a particular disease. It is important to get the hamster checked at a veterinary for treatment.
