Not an expert, but you need a Vets opinion, since it may cause a nasty tongue wound leading to infection and big trouble. It could easily stop the Hamster eating, then  gradual starvation and curtains.

If our Vetnurse reads this, perhaps she would give her opinion.

You need to go to the vets

You need to go to the vets and get them clipped ASAP. The alternative is death of the hamster. Without food and water they do not last long and his teeth will be getting in the way.

Chopped teeth

Actually my mom did it she said

that it would be cheaper and the vets wouldn't help anyway but I ask her to take him to the vet to have it done but she doesn't and I tell her at least file them not cut them if you do it at all but it still makes it a bad idea .

  For those of us with Suzuki

 

For those of us with Suzuki Outboards Sale a reasonable fear of the ocean, this is a worst case scenario: Last week, Dan Suski, 30, and his sister Kate Suski, 39, chartered a fishing boat in St. Lucia. Things were going fine, despite the rough seas, and the siblings even managed to hook a 200-pound marlin. They were battling the giant fish when water rushed onto the boat and flooded its engine room. As the captain radioed for help, another surge Yamaha 4 Stroke Outboard of water swamped the boat. At that point, the captain tossed the Suskis life jackets and ordered them into the ocean.

 

"He said, 'Jump out! Jump out!'" Kate Suski recalled in a telephone interview Thursday with The Associated Press.

 

The captain and the first mate soon joined them and Yamaha 150 outboard, five minutes later, the boat sank, leaving the group stranded at least eight miles from shore. The group stayed put for the first hour, awaiting rescue. No one came. The group started to swim, but the rough waves caused the Suskis to became separated from the captain and first mate. "We would just see swells and gray," Dan Suski said.

 

Hours went by. A helicopter and search plane arrived but failed to notice the two siblings. They continued swimming. Eventually, the sun went down.

 

"There's this very real understanding that the situation is Yamaha outboard motors dire," Kate Suski said. "You come face-to-face with understanding your own mortality ... We both processed the possible ways we might die. Would we drown? Be eaten by a shark?"

 

Neither could stop thinking about sharks. "I thought I was going to vomit I was so scared," Kate said.

 

Finally, after 14 hours, they came within 30 feet of land only to discover the coast was covered with cliffs, making it impossible to climb from the ocean. “We knew we would get crushed,” Kate said.

 

They kept swimming, Yamaha outboards Sale finally finding a small stretch of sand. Once ashore, they collapsed before again going into survival mode to avoid hypothermia. They hiked into the island and huddled together, covering themselves in grass and brush to stay warm. They spent the night like that, only moving when the sun rose. It took three hours before they found a farmer, who called police and gave them water and crackers.

 

They would later find out that the captain and first mate had been rescued after 23 hours in the ocean.

 

Despite dehydration, severe tendonitis and Honda outboards Sale cuts over their feet and back, the couple didn't blame anyone for the ordeal.

 

"We are so grateful to be alive right now," Kate Suski said. "Nothing can sort of puncture that bubble."
