Science Selective Hamster
A nutritionally complete diet with oats and barley, formulated specifically to meet the nutritional requirements of hamsters.
This diet is recommended by vets and is highly palatable. Selective is rich in tasty wholegrain goodness. Linseed, an excellent natural source of Omega 3 & 6, is also added to ensure coats stay glossy and in good condition.
But it is what we don’t put in to Selective that is important too…
Have you checked the label on your hamster’s food lately? Take a look, because some foods contain molasses or syrup or other sugary ingredients. This extra sugar in a hamster’s diet can lead to overeating and obesity. It can also lead to dental problems too.
Feeding Selective for the first time?
If you are feeding Selective to your hamsters for the first time, make sure you change from one food to another, gradually over 7-14 days. At first, you should mix a small amount of Selective with your hamster’s current food, slowly decreasing the old diet, whilst gradually increasing the quantity of Selective. A sudden change in diet can cause digestive upsets – even when you are changing to a better quality diet – so take care!
If your hamstees are used to a sugary diet, you may find it takes them a while to change, but persevere as it will help to benefit their health in the long term.
And don’t forget fresh water! Your hamsters should have an unlimited supply at all times.
