Small Animal Food and Treats

Small animals require high-quality, species specific food that is supplemented with treats, fresh vegetables and fruits to make a complete and balanced diet. Rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas also require hay as a large part of their diet to help promote proper digestion, while hamsters, gerbils, mice and rats enjoy hay in their diet—but do not require it.

Frequently Asked Questions About Small Animal Food and Treats

Although a variety of treats is appreciated, they should not exceed 10% of daily total food provided to your small animal.

Offering your pet a variety of treats is a great way to keep them mentally stimulated and promote bonding with your pet. They can also be used to teach your pet fun and engaging tricks.

There are a variety of pet-friendly fruits and veggies that provide enrichment, vitamins and minerals to your pet's diet. Many, but not all, small animals are able to eat collard greens, mustard greens, spinach, romaine, kale, bell peppers, zucchini, apples, bananas and strawberries. For a complete care guide for your specific small animal species refer to our Care Sheets and consult your veterinarian.

Try putting treats, fruits and vegetables into their favorite toys, train them to take these goodies from your hand or reward them for learning a new trick.
