    Hi this is placed in the wrong forums.

    For my hamsters and gerbils i only ever use plain unscented woodshavings as i have found with aspen and nother woodshavings that are scented cause respiritory (sp) problems.

    I would have it checked out by a vet and change the shavings and see how he goes.

    As for climbing the bars and falling back down this is normal, I put old kitchen paper tubes or toilet paper tubes in to chew on and play in.
    Also i have a habitat home for a couple of my hamsters as they love running round all the tubes.
