Hamster Food

When it comes to choosing the best food for your hamster chums, Burgess Hamster, Gerbil & Mouse comes out on top. In fact, 92% of UK vets recommend our Burgess Excel small pets range.

Whether you’re looking for dwarf hamster food or pellets for your Syrian hamster, the best hamster diet should replicate what they’d eat in their natural environment. Wild hamsters eat grasses, seeds and grain. And although they’re often thought of as herbivores, hamsters are actually omnivores, and need protein in their diet to keep them healthy.

A good diet is one that contains nutrition-packed hamster nuggets specially designed for these small rodents. Supplement this with a little top-quality feeding hay to nibble on, which will keep their continually growing teeth in good shape, along with a tiny amount of fresh food a couple of times a week.

It’s best to avoid ‘muesli-style’ hamster food mix varieties as this could encourage selective feeding, where hamsters pick out the bits that are high in sugar and discard the more nutritious elements, leading to an imbalanced diet.

At Burgess, all our high-quality hamster food is nutritionally balanced and made at our factory in the heart of Yorkshire, using only ingredients that meet our stringent specifications.
