    Are there any other sypmtoms you have noticed? Has her body temperature changed? Any discharge or bleeding? Take her to the vet immediately because it sounds serious. Go to this website and you can search illnesses by symptoms.

    It may be Aspergillis Fungus growing in the cage. The spores are airborne and harmful to the hamster. The vet can give you an antibiotic or anti-fungal medicine. Clean the cage out really good, including bars, levels and food dish. Use a pet safe disinfectant and boiling water. You need to kill all the spores or all future efforts are wasted. Change your cleaning habits. Spot clean the area she uses to go potty daily. Once a week change all of the litter and clean the bottom with a disinfectant.

    Go to the vet immediately, especially if you notice any other symptoms.

    Best of luck!

    There's something wrong with you're hamster if she's weak and tired. Bring her to the vet.
