3151. A hairless 24-month-old dwarf hamster squeaks and scratches his abdomen




No complaints about appetite. Squeaking frequently esp. when bloated abdomen is scratched. Squeaked and squeaked, but pass small stools.  A mass palpable in right abdomen.

X-ray show mass pushing up diaphragm. Liver or splenic tumour likely.

The reason for squeaking was the pain in the inflamed skin. The owner had applied oil onto the skin from head to toe. The skin becomes fiery red and hence painful. Some parts were flaky. 99% of the skin was hairless.
