My little one called Hettie is limping on her back leg. It isn't swollen and there's no cuts. I don't know what might be wrong with her, but if you can give us some advice we'd appreciate it.

i would see a vet as your little one is going to need an anti inflammatory injection such as a prednisalone or dexmethasone steroid injection. also some antibiotics. and rest is the main key.... hamster cage that has no movement at all.

i bought a tiny tiny one from pets at home and just hung a little hammock from either side and really that was it. just lots of cuddles during healing time as playtime is not possible.

in about 14 days should be back to normal if a break.

I agree with everything HM has said.

A small space, some healing time, antibiotics incase of any infections, and let the vet feel about it.
