Vitamin E Deficiency in Hamsters



Your veterinarian might treat vitamin E deficiency by administering vitamin E capsules, though he or she will more likely devise a plan for proper dietary management to stabilize the hamster's vitamin E levels.




Vitamin E deficiency can often be prevented by providing your pet with an appropriate, balanced diet. If you suspect your hamster is pregnant, check with your veterinarian regarding the amount of vitamin E required in her diet and discuss the benefits of supplements.
