Both Hamsters and gerbils are omnivores meaning they eat a diet of vegetation and meat. Their food should contain a healthy mixture of both vegetables and meat-based protein without being heavy on fillers, such as corn. You’ll find most hamster and gerbil food is either in pellet form or sold as a loose mixture. You can be sure that your pet is getting a complete meal if you opt for pellets. If you decide on a loose mixture, make sure that your fuzzy friend isn’t just picking out certain parts and dismissing the rest.
These little furballs are the epitome of cuteness and seeing them nibble on a carrot can brighten up your day. Although giving these delicious delights to your tiny pet will bring you joy (and they won’t complain), treats still need to make up a very small part of their overall diet. If you give them too many hamster and gerbil treats, you are going to deny your fuzzy friends the balanced nutrition they need to stay healthy. Moreover, giving your hamster treats of fruits and vegetables that are high in sugar will upset their stomachs and may lead to health issues.
While hamster and gerbil food is usually interchangeable, you’ll want to be certain that the packaging states that it is safe for both. The same applies to gerbil and hamster treats.
