Help! my daughters hamster is sick

Hi, my daughters hamster, Keeko is not feeling well. When checking on him last night we noticed something long and black coming from his behind. I'm not sure if its something he ate and is causing digesting problems or if it is more serious. Can anyone help.

I think you need to find a vet that cares for smaller animals. Did you have a look at the long, black thing he excreted? It could maybe give you a clue. To me, black suggests old blood, which would be very serious in such a tiny creature. Is it something he ate?

How is he doing? Better I hope? Did you take whim to a vet?
