Several times a week, the hamster can be given small pieces of bread, and raisins, pieces of dried apricots, and a small piece of cookies are perfect as a treat.
Once a week, chicken without salt, cottage cheese, baby meat food or a small piece of boiled egg will be happy to be eaten by your pet. If you are expecting a new addition to your hamster family, it is recommended that you give your hamster a protein meal every day.

Pamper your pet with fresh twigs of fruit and berry plants once a week. They are packed with nutrients and can also help strengthen your pet's teeth.
