Hamster Cold?
We recently had colds in our family & I believe our ~6 month old Syrian hamster may have caught it. She never really made noises before, but she's been very chatty these past couple of weeks (even when by herself). I think I may have also heard her sneeze. (Kissing sound? Sneeze?). She also seems to sleep a lot more. She'll eat bits of brocolli, but I think she may be stashing the rest of her food rather than actually eating it. This morning, I heard her chattering (like a kissing sound) & I went in to tempt her with a piece of banana. She came to me & ate the banana, but I think (?) I heard a little wheezing. I am afraid to take her to the vet because it is 30 degrees outside & it would also stress her out. Is there any over the counter medication I can give her? Can hamsters get over colds on their own?  Thanks.
