Hi guys! I haven't been on here for a while so hi! Ok, for my birthday, I got two Robovorski hamsters, Acorn and Walnut. I have a few questions to ask about them. First of all, I heard that a little bit of cat treats every now and then is good for them (correct me if I'm wrong). I was wondering if this kind was ok.
Old Mother Hubbard Meaties Chicken Flavor 7.5 oz
Whole Wheat Flour, Chicken, Oatmeal, Wheat Bran, Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols, a natural source of Vitamin E), Cane Molasses, Turmeric, Natural Chicken Flavor, Mixed Tocopherols (a natural preservative).
Also, I heard Milkbones were good for them (every once in a while, obviously) I was just going to get the mini, original. Are they Ok? Or should I get the puppy ones?
Original contains wheat flour, wheat bran, meat and bone meal, milk, wheat germ, beef fat (mixed tocopherols), salt, natural flavor, dicalcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, brewer's dried yeast, malted barley flour, sodium metabisulfite (used as a preservative), choline chloride, ferrous sulfate, zinc oxide, manganous oxide, copper sulfate, calcium iodate, sodium selenite, vitamin E supplement, vitamin A supplement, niacin supplement, D-calcium pantothenate, riboflavin supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin D3 supplement, folic acid, biotin and vitamin B12 supplement
Currently, their staple diet is All Living Things hamster and gerbil daily diet. (http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=4252254
) I heard this wasn't very nutritious for them so I wanted to switch them to a mix of Mazuri hamster food, (http://www.mazuri.com/mazurihamsterg...t2lb-5e10.aspx
) Oxbow hamster food, http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...uctId=12179990
and Hazel Hamster Food http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...AvailInUS%2FNo
Do you guys think this is a good combo?
Also, is Oxbow timothy hay http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...AvailInUS%2FNo
And I was going to get some cuttlebone, http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...AvailInUS%2FNo
as a source of calcium for them (and something to do)
