Please note that these are guidelines.  If your hamster or gerbil is overweight or underweight, please contact your veterinarian or Oxbow for more specific feeding information. Hamsters are known to hoard and hide their food, particularly females or those housed with other hamsters.  Be sure to check for stockpiles of food and adjust daily rations as required. While hamsters and gerbils don’t require hay as a staple in their diet, be sure to offer them free choice hay to burrow and hide in.
