Organic Dwarf Hamster Food "SENIOR" 500g
Age-appropriate food mix for older 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 remind us of the steppes of central Asia, which are the original habitat of hamsters of the different Phodopus species.
Indeed, we have made a number of excursions to central Asia to explore the natural habitat and the food sources available to the wild hamsters there in various seasons. The results of research into the dwarf hamsters’ natural habitats form the basis of this food. These findings were used along with the guidelines of the Tierärztliche Hochschule Hannover (being the veterinary college of Hannover) as well as experience from many years of hamster keeping to create an ideal food for your little friend.
Each of the 34 components included in our Organic Dwarf Hamster Food recipe has been chosen based on what would be available to wild dwarf hamsters living in various location in the steppes. 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.
And to make sure that no trace of fertilizer or, even worse, pesticide residue ruins your pet’s enjoyment we have been using organic ingredients whenever possible since establishing our company in 2003. By 2018 our network of suppliers is so large and reliable that we can now make all organic foods.
By the way: 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.
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.
This tub contains approximately 90 measuring spoons worth of food, which lasts on average 2-3 months, depending on the animal.
