Hospital Cage. A tank or large carrier like the plastic tanks above, can be used for a poorly hamster. It makes them easy to observe or capture for medication. It can be easily heated with an underfloor heater if needed, and is an easy way to restrict movement for post operative care. Water bottles can be attached to straight sided tanks with Velcro. Unfloor heating must only heat one side of the tank so the hamster can move when too warm
It's important to remember that this is only temporary caging for a sick or recovering animal.
