Health Questions & Answers



I hope you can help. My hamster is a bit weak on the front and back legs but is eating and drinking as usual. She doesn't seem unhappy but isn't moving very well. I took her to the vets about it before and he said it's probable that she had fallen but it seems to have happened again. She doesn't seem to have great control over her feet either - when she walks her feet sometimes don't go forward enough so she will walk on her knuckles. Do you think this is arthritis? Please can you let me know ASAP?

Many thanks...

Dear Anna,

It is hard to diagnose over the computer. If she did fall there could be pressure on a nerve which could cause the knuckling over. I would try Arthro-IonX because it would help if she did fall but would also help with other metabolic conditions including arthritis. It is easy to give since it is liquid and also easy to scale down the dose. It will help to cleanse cells in the body and stimulate enzyme function which in turn helps improve many areas other than just joints.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
