A tiny hamster influencer weighing just 50g had life-saving surgery to remove a huge tumour - and made a speedy recovery to the delight of her 50k followers. See SWNS story SWMRhamster. Jasmyn Purewal, 15, and her mum, discovered their pet - named Coco Chanel - had a tiny red spot on her stomach on 8th June 2022. They took the dwarf hamster - who has 50k followers on social media - to the vets and were initially given a course of antibiotics. Coco tried to continue as her normal self, but it was clear something was weighing her down. She couldnt go in her wheel and seemed more tired than usual. The lump continued to grow and, two weeks later, vets at White Cross Vets, Birmingham, West Midlands, suspected it was a benign tumour that needed to be operated on. The growth weighed 10g - accounting for 17% of the rodent's body weight. The operation was considered risky due to Coco's small stature, but the family were prepared to do whatever it took to save their beloved pet.
