All of them are sneezing 24/7, is that bad?

I'm a new hamster owner and I have been hearing all of my hamsters sneezing a lot I don't know if that is normal of not. They are kept in the same cage and I have Forth-Diet pine bedding and I clean the cage every week with a little bit of soap and water. I don't know if they are sick or not. Do I take them to the vet?

It is not normal for them to be sneezing. It may well be something to fi with the pine bedding. Try changing the bedding and if not improving or if they go off their food then do get then seen by a vet.



Unless they're near anything else smelly like air fresheners or damp I would say change the bedding! Shredded paper is good, straw or tissue..

Good point about the air fresheners. Thank you for posting it.
