Dylans Story... Pt: 2

Posted: 4th January 2019

Following on from our story yesterday, Dylan the hamster was diagnosed with Cushings- a hormonal condition that meant he was producing too much steroid.

Vet Jayne discovered that it could be treated but the only medicine available was for dogs.

With a few calculations and some mixing of the capsule contents in water, Dylan began his treatment.

He responded very quickly as you can see from the photo below - his hair grew back, he drank less water and his tummy settled down.

It is now over six months since he started treatment and he is a complete star for his regular checks with Jayne. Obviously he wouldn’t be doing this well without the amazing dedication of his owners and their outstanding ability to obtain a hamster urine sample!
