My hamster dosent bite me ever, he only bites other people.

Your hamster probably doesn't feel as safe with your friends as he does with you.

While Dr. Marie can't officially diagnose your pet or prescribe medications, she can often advise you on whether a vet visit is necessary. You can also ask Dr. Marie for a second opinion on your pet's condition.
