Amyloid Deposition within the Internal Organs of Hamsters

Treatment

 

There is no treatment for amyloidosis, except to make the hamster more comfortable by giving it fluids and other supplements.

 

Living and Management

 

Consult your veterinarian about the special dietary requirements of your ailing pet and take steps to monitor it closely for signs of health complications. The doctor will also recommend regular visits to assess the hamster's condition.

 

Prevention

 

Prevention is not a viable strategy for amyloidosis. However, because amyloid deposition is likely to develop in hamsters with long-term illness, promptly diagnosing and treating ailments will make them less prone to the disease.
