Feeding Directions

Hamsters are known to hoard and hide their food, particularly females or those housed with other hamsters. Be sure to check for stockpiles of food and adjust daily rations as required. This information is meant to be used as a guideline. Individual needs may vary. If your pet is overweight, underweight, or has a medical condition, please contact your veterinarian for more specific feeding information.

    The Oxbow Essentials hamster food is perfect. I find my Syrian hamster likes a little more variety than just little kibbles so I add about 5 of the kibbles to my Hazel Hamster food daily.
