Mayonnaise was surrendered to #Hamilton Animal Services because of allergies in his owner’s family. Shortly after his arrival, HAS staff noticed that Mayonnaise was hording his food, but not really eating it. His fur was disheveled & he seemed to be losing weight. HAS staff reached out to us & we were happy to help.
We got Mayonnaise out of the shelter & straight to small animal specialist Dr. Stubbs at @spencercreekanimalhospital for a check-up. Dr. Stubbs didn’t see anything unusual during the physical exam, but it did look like Mayonnaise was suffering from a urinary infection, so she started him on antibiotics.
Mayonnaise was transferred to his foster home & he did great there over the next few weeks. By the time his medication was finished, his health had improved 100%. Here’s a note from Mayonnaise’s #foster home:
“Mayonnaise has finished his medication for the urinary tract infection, is now in perfect health & is ready to be adopted.
He arrived a terrified & likely abused little hamster. The first morning when I tried to pick him up for his medicine he screamed. It was heartbreaking!! I have never heard a hamster make such a disturbing noise. He was so scared to be picked up.
In the 2 weeks he was on his meds he slowly learned to trust me & feel safe in his new environment. Every day it became easier to pick him up. Now he feels safe being handled & even accepts head kisses. He has become very friendly & eagerly takes treats from my fingers. He is a very sweet little hamster. Mayonnaise is eating well & enjoying life.
It’s adopt a senior month & Mayonnaise is hoping some kind, patient person will adopt him & give him all the love he deserves.” Please adopt Mayonnaise!
