A hamsters diet mainly
consists of a dried mix that can be bought in pet stores. This will
contain all the vitamins and minerals a hamster needs. Make sure
the mix you buy doesn't contain too many seeds or nuts because too
many of these can make your hamster fat. One thing to note when
feeding dwarf hamsters is not to feed too many sugary foods as this
could lead to diabetes. You should provide two teaspoons of the
dry mix each day. Any food that your hamster doesn't eat should
be thrown away.
Along with the normal hamster
mix you can also feed your hamster fresh fruit and vegetables once
or twice a week. Be careful you don't feed too many of these as
it may cause the hamster to get diarrhoea.
The following is a list
of some foods you can feed your hamster:
