Hello, Hamster lovers! I goanna share with you how to control your pet hamster diet for Roborovski. 

Mostly all hamster looks fat, just like a fury ball! Some is because their hair too Bucky and some is … really FAT.

Lets talk about how to control their diet.

For an adult Roborovski should weight range from 25 – 35g. But overweight are common to hamsters cause it’s very easy to over feed these little ones. They get overweight easily is because we often pamper our fur friends with food or treats that are high in sugar, flour based ingredients. All these contain weight gain. Hence, treats should be given only twice weekly at most. 

Overweight Causes

Overweight may cause heart problems, fatty liver diseases and joint pain in hamster.

How to control your hamster diet

Exercise is the key for Roborovski, Some hamster love their wheels and they do exercise in the morning just like humans do! Shouldn’t be an issue for these breed cause they are extremely active and loves running. To be surprised, Roborovski hamster can run the distance of four humans marathons! WHAT! cool or what? Ha-ha!

Do also check : 

  • check on their Wheel is it the correct size.
  • any uneven surfaces on the wheel.
  • Give them treats only once a week.

They might not enjoy the run due to discomfort. 

Helps with their Exercise

There are a few things you can do to help them and encourage them to exercise by building a tunnel using unused paper rolls.

Healthy Tips 

Feed them with small bits of vegetables, cucumbers, celery are all fat free! Can train them for exercise by putting small bits on along the tunnel or their wheel. I always do that to my hamsters and I feel heathy too! 😀

So, do observed and monitor whether these vegetable cause diarrhea in your hamster. Another option is to purchase a Running Ball.

HAPPY PET-OWNING!

2 Useful Link to Take Note of your Little Fur Balls Hamster

Recently, my little fur ball have a bit trouble for it fur loss and something may cause it to happen which I don’t know. I went to do some research and found out some possibility to cause of loss fur. I guess some of you out there may have this problem so, I would like to share the link with you and to solve our problem 🙂

I wonder hamster can bathe in the bath? if not how to get them clean by just bathing the sand? I can’t get any idea of it yet. But I do try to bathe in the water. This is what I did:

I use a empty tank, add a bit of water only. I use a water spray to lightly spray the water thru the tank and let the water drip on my hamster. Bit by bit and slowly and carefully.

I use a hair dryer with small cold warm air to blow him up but not directly on him. Just shake the dryer left to right. Before that I let in dry in the sun first for awhile.

I’m doing this testing once and I was hoping he will get better. It’s makes me worried and I went to do this research.

Five Common Reasons for Fur Loss in Hamsters

This link helps me and give me solution on why my fur ball cause loss fur. May click on the link which I find it helps me.

My little fur ball condition now, I didn’t put any bedding since the day he keep scratching and I decide to take out all the bedding just to do a testing.

Apparently, after I take off a few days later, I see him getting better and his fur grow back too. I tot he was back to normal so I think is the bedding fault.

I suspect that he might have attack by mites or ticks which cause him from itchiness and scratching non stop and fur falling too. For what I know on this link. I would like to figure out more and give some updates sooner or later 🙂

Hello Pals and friends!

I would like to share with you about my pet hamster that I recently bought from pet shop.

I bought a Hamster breed, which I guess is Djungarian Dwarfs. I went to search for information and its look similar to that breed hamster. Which have grey colour fur.

Seeing all those hamsters in the shop, I feel like getting them all! But too bad I only can afford for one.

So what are the things that you need to have to keep a pet hamster ?

Here are the few things that you must have, before considering having a small pet like hamster, guinea pig, rabbits and etc.

Cage

For the cage, to me I would like to get those easier to clean type of cage. Or the best is to get a fish tank or a plastic type with all clear sides. But starting you may want to get a cage that come with a set together with the wheel and etc else. On later days, you can change to a better ones which you like to have for your little pet.
