My daughter has a dwarf hamster, Eevee, who is in her golden years (months?) She is probably about 18 months old and, in the past couple of months, has started showing her age. She is still very active, but is developing cataracts, is on a diabetic diet now, and recently has a more unsteady gait and a bit of a hunch when she walks. I suspect she has arthritis. Has anyone's vet ever prescribed metacam or other painkillers for an animal this small? I mean, she's a dwarf, she's only a few ounces. Although I suspect we probably won't have her that much longer, given her age and general decline, I really hate to think of her being uncomfortable.
