For the Love of Humphrey

Dayna's sweet little hamster friend had a rough time earlier this month. Out of nowhere, he developed a large lump right under his mouth. All research pointed to a cancerous tumor. Since Humphrey was acting okay and playing with us as normal...and touching the mass didn't appear to cause him discomfort...we just watched him for a few days. 

Mama finally broke down and called the vet by the third day. We honestly didn't know if he'd be making a return trip. seems our little hamster dude (as we affectionately call him around here) simply had an abscess that needed to be drained. A little hamster loving and tiny syringes of hamster   antibiotics, and our little guy is happy and playful again.

The things we do for love.
