What to do if the hamster bit?
You should not think that all domestic rodents like rats, hamsters and guinea pigs – the God's dandelions loving caress and gnawing only carrot. As an alternative they can gryznut very quietly your finger or any other part of a body which will appear in a cage. I Will tell
at once – it happens extremely seldom, but after all happens. The sting of a rodent is very painful and can be followed by a large amount of blood. It occurs because teeth of hamsters, rats and. etc. extend at a sting a little and the laceration turns out deep.
of Action at a rodent sting standard – to stop bleeding, to process a wound iodine, peroxide or brilliant green and to stick with a plaster. I will tell at once: rage practically all mammals and risk have to catch is always. But if your hamster house, lives at you several months and symptoms of rage were not shown, to worry there is nothing.
Why are bitten by rodents? Any loud sound, penetration into a cage for an animal – already a stress, therefore also reaction corresponding. Once at me there lived a rat, very lovely and amusing being, and, above all – absolutely manual. And here with hamsters friendship did not develop, bit already several times. By the way, these stings are quite painful and long begin to live.
If the rodent bit the small child, I advise to see the doctor on duty and if necessary to do vaccination against tetanus and other infections.
