Oswin, my female rodent roborovski hamster, has loss of hair

She has suddenly started losing due on the top of her head and seems a little slower/wobbly than normal. I’ve never owned a hamster before and know that they don’t live long, but I’m not sure if these symptoms are just due to her growing older or if they point to more serious issues. Do I need to take her to the vet?

Oswin needs to visit the vet. The vet will need to check if the origin of these calves is some parasite.

Kind regards,
