Hi guys, bit of a weird question, but I think my hamster is starting to look a bit chubby! :ROFLMAO: While I joke about it, I am worried it could be bad for him too. Do I need to worry? What can I do to make him lose weight and make sure he doesn't get too fat???

Are you sure its a male? How long have you had it? Has it been in contact with another hamster in the last 16-24 days?

Does he exercise? Maybe the food could be changed for better diet.

What diet do you feed? And is he picky about the food he feeds?

If he is on a healthy diet, and very active there is no need to worry :)

But if he isn't too active and not on a good diet this could lead to some health problems.

Hamsters will not over eat, but if fed a fatty/not so good diet they may be fat. I would weigh you hamster every week so you know of any weight gain/loss as well.
