Compound feed for diabetes-prone dwarf hamsters and their hybrids
Food mix for dwarf hamsters at risk of developing diabetes
42 prime ingredients, partly from organic certified sources
Each of the 42 components included in our Hybrid Hamster Food recipe has been chosen based on what would be available to wild dwarf hamsters living in various location in the steppes; and the quantities are carefully balanced to keep blood sugar spikes as low as possible while still providing your pet with all the nutrients he or she needs. All ingredients are carefully checked and only make it into our food mixes if they meet our strict quality requirements – thus, each and every bite your little gourmet takes is a feast for his senses.
Mix & match insects
A proverb says “tastes vary”. This is true not only for humans, but also for our pets. For this reason, we do not add “standard” insects as sources of protein. Instead, we ask you to choose your pet’s favourite insects separately and feed them either as treats (this is very effective when taming a new pet!) or add them to this compound feed. And if you occasionally want to feed your pet a little piece of a hardboiled egg or a little cottage cheese, you can simply leave out the insects that day to avoid feeding too much protein.
Wild dwarf hamsters live in steppes and desert areas, where they find a varied diet that changes with the seasons. On their exciting late evening rambles through nature, hamsters use their sensitive noses to find all the best bits of food, which they either carry home in their pouches or eat then and there.
Feed 1 heaped measuring spoon (this equals 1 heaped tablespoon) and one insect of your choice per day. Please check weekly how much food your pet has stashed away in his larder: if the stores are, figuratively, overflowing, please reduce the amount of food slightly; if there is hardly anything stored your pet probably needs a little more food. If you are caring for a pregnant or lactating female, please let her have half a measuring spoon of this hamster mix and one insect extra per day.
