Saving Private Hamster Day 1
Last night I injected a total of 2mls of 5% Dextrose and 2mls of Normal Saline into the hamster's neck subcutaneously.
We also gave her some oral feeds of Pedialyte solution. Total about another 2mls. She was very very weak. Hardly struggled at all.
This morning she was still lethargic but moving a bit more. When we tried to pick her up she started to struggle quite a bit. That was a good sign.
Gave another 3mls subcutaneously and oral feeds 2mls.
Observed her for a while. She's opening her eyes. Could climb onto her wheel and made a few walks on it.
Looks like things are picking up.
