this is terrible! my hammy fell from his cage on to hard wood floor last night, maybe 2 feet. He looked ok and I picked him up. Today he hasn't moved. I can see him breathing, but for everything else he is non responsive. I goto pick him up and he is completely no responsive, almost feels a little stiff, eyes closed, but still breathing. Could be be in a coma??? I feel so bad!!!!! help!

Oh, I'm so sorry!

Could you call a vet? If you look in the phonebook you should be able to find a 24 hour emergency vet in your area that you could call.

I hope he's okay!

I have no way to get my hammy to a vet, status update is that I think he's having trouble breathing now, still not responsive and he is taking big gasps of air, he opens his mouth really big when he breaths, looks like he is struggling.
