Rodent Rick

Rick, my male rodent hamster, has pees too often

I had my syrian hamster for a year and 9 months now. And yesterday he started to pee like 3 or 4 times per hour, almost every time i took him out of his cage he would instantly look for a place to pee when i put him down. From what i have seen he normally would pee once every 5 hours, so it seemed very odd for this to happen. I also noticed his movements were slow and he chatters at me when i try to pet him now.

Please, find a vet that has experience with small rodents. He might have a urinary infection or another problem... is his tail wet? He acts like he's in pain.

Kind regards
