Our Chinese dwarf hamster died all of a sudden. She was

Our Chinese dwarf hamster died all of a sudden. She was about one and one half years old, at least that is what we think. She was running around yesterday with lots of energy and my daughter found her dead today. The only sign we can see of anything is that her front paws are bloody. She has had the same wheel she has always had which was smooth plastic. Any ideas. We have another chinese dwarf who lives in a separate cage and would like to figure out anything we need to be aware of. Thanks.
