Well as some of you know I got a new hamster, 4 days ago. Well last night I noticed he had slept the WHOLE day, only getting out once in a while, rarely eating and drinking, and rarely in his wheel like he was the first couple days. And then I noticed shavings were sticking to his bum and he is dirty and smelly down in that area... so I started reading and I'm worried that he may have Wet Tail.

But would that mean he had it when he was in the store?? Cause I read it takes 7 days to show symptoms .. I've only had him 4 days ... then wouldn't that mean all the rest of the hamsters that were in his cage have it too??

Could it be something else? He does seem to be very nervous and doesn't like me around him at all .. .
