Nutritional Deficiencies

Home > Hamsters > Diseases

Our hamster feeding section has a great abundance of feeding information as it pertains to hamsters whereas this article will focus on preventing and curing deficiencies in their nutrition.

In order to stay healthy a hamster needs a combination of specially prepared hamster mix, fruits and vegetables. Many health problems can arise if your hamster is not fed a combination of these foods. When selecting an appropriate hamster mix ensure that it is designed for hamsters as opposed to other rodents. All types of rodents have their own nutrient requirements.

If you suspect that your hamster does have a diet deficiency your first course of action should be to modify their diet based on our feeding instructions. If this does not work after a week or two the hamster should be brought to the veterinarian. Your veterinarian can not only recommend changes for your hamsters diet but can also provide injectable nutrients if required.
