Whats up with my hamster?

He hasnt been using his wheel all that much, he just lies in a corner of his cage or just sprawled out on his belly. Is he on his way out? He's 13 months old and I got him from Petsmart.

They are usually active in the nightime. I'm sure he'll use it anytime soon. Maybe he's not in the mood. They'd sleep in funny positions.

Hope he feels better!

I used to own a black/white teddy hamster, her name was Gorda and she lived over 3 years and died of old age. I got her when she was born, well I had to wait for a few weeks for her to grow fur & enough to wean eating the solid food lol. I got her from my cousin. :3

Is there any heavy or labored breathing? Any strange rattling sounds if you hold him close to your ear?

I think he is just getting older. How much bigger did he grow after you got him? Usually they won't sell them until they are at least 6 weeks old. I hope he feels better. :)

Has appearance changed? As in having smooth fur to having spiked messy fur, also when hes in his corner is his back ever hunched?

Can you take him out of the cage and check him over? Is he eating and drinking normally? Is he breathing normally?

Ive looked him over and he looks okay to me...He eats okay but it seems like he drinks more than normal. His breathing seems a little heavy but I can't really tell...
