Day 2 after surgery.  It costs the owner a lot of money as the delay in seeking treatment for this hamster meant double surgeries and a long hospitalisation stay. For pet hamster owners, any veterinary fee over $100 appears to be costly when they can buy a new hamster for $20.00. In this case, the total veterinary costs were around $250.00 on subsidized rates. The hamster survived two anaesthesias and is still alive and kicking. Details of the case study is at:  The tough cookie hamster.
2009.  The case of the wood-shaving-injured hamster
As the hamster is so small compared to dogs and cats, some cases of foreign body injuries are missed. Digital images may help or use a microscope. In this case, the digital picture revealed a piece of wood shaving being lodged near the penis.   
2004.  The case of the big-chested hamster
Haematoma in a dwarf hamster - Toa Payoh Vets
Delays in seeking  veterinary treatment is part and parcel of veterinary practice. Sometimes, the parents just do not have time or want to get the hamster treated. After all, the veterinary fees may cost more than the purchase of 10 new hamsters. But such a mindset is sadly prevalent in the older baby-boomer generation of Singapore parents. With the new generation, the pet hamster is family and therefore, such calculating personalities seldom exist in the younger generation for whom their pet health is paramount and not replacement new hamsters.
