Rodipet Organic Dwarf Hamster Food "Senior" (500g)
Age-appropriate food mix for young dwarf hamsters – composed just as it would be in the wild
As our little friends grow older their habits change, and so do their dietary needs.
Growing animals need a lot of protein for their bodies to grow and develop; young adult hamsters need a lot of energy as they first leave their mothers’ burrows, find their own territories and thence start looking for eligible mates; and aging pets need more fibre and vital substances to remain fit and mobile for as long as possible.
Our SENiOR Mix is tailored to the needs of fully grown and older dwarf hamsters. It contains all the nutrients your dwarf hamster over 12 months of age needs; and less protein and high-energy components, making it better suited to his slowing metabolism than junior food.
Carefully selected delicious herbs, quality seeds, tasty roots and tender vegetables from organic sources (free of fertilizers and pesticides) remind us of the steppes of central Asia, which are the original habitat of hamsters of the different Phodopus species.
Vitamins and micronutrients are gradually degraded during storage, especially when in contact with oxygen. For this reason, we keep our stores low, mix fresh foods every day and package them in airtight containers. Thus, your pet gets all of nature’s great wealth of nutrients.
- Age-appropriate diet
- With vegetables and herbs
- High-quality natural ingredients
- From the food range of the natural habitat
- Pick and choose your pet’s favourite insects separately
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.
