Keeping your hamster looking good and feeling clean means having the right hamster grooming supplies on hand. Chewy carries a variety of grooming supplies for hamsters including dry hamster shampoo, sand baths, grooming gloves and brushes, nail trimmers and more.
Hamsters handle a lot of grooming themselves, so you shouldn't have to do too much to keep them clean and looking good. Shorthaired hamsters usually require no brushing unless they get into something or are older or ailing, but you will probably need to brush longhaired breeds regularly to stay on top of tangles. Invest in a good small animal brush and/or comb for your longhaired hamster and keep small scissors on hand to cut out mats. Sand baths work well for when your hamster gets unusually dirty, and you can also find dry shampoos for hamsters to remove excessive grime. Avoid giving a hamster a bath if at all possible, as it isn't good for them and could cause health issues.
Nail trimmers will help you keep hamster nails trim and tidy, but you can also find nail-trimming cage accessories like lava rock perches and abrasive hamster wheel liners to help keep nails in check. Having a hamster first aid kit and some hamster bandages on hand for emergencies or minor health complaints is a good idea, too, and you can find lots of hamster health and wellness supplies like wound care, thermometers, scales and homeopathic remedies and supplements on our site to help keep your hamster in continued good health.
Good hamster health and grooming can be easy if you have the right hamster supplies, and Chewy has everything you need to get the job done right. Shop our site for the best grooming and health supplies as well as things like hamster treats to make groom-time pleasant for your pet.

Wash your hamster with a damp washcloth or small animal wipes if there's a dirty spot you don't think he'll be able to clean himself. Sand or dust baths are a great way to get your hamster clean the natural way; just put one in his cage for a while and he'll take care of the rest! You can also find small animal dry shampoos that work for hamsters or try brushing to remove dirt.
You can bathe a hamster, but you shouldn't unless it's absolutely necessary. Bathing hamsters in water can remove protective natural oils, give them a dangerous chill and agitate them unnecessarily. If your hamster has gotten into something hazardous that other grooming methods won't remove, you can very carefully bathe your hamster in a shallow bowl with warm water and dry thoroughly right afterward. Should you want to bather your hamster because he smells persistently pungent, try cleaning his cage more thoroughly and changing out his hamster bedding more often.
Clean your hamster infrequently, as most hamsters do a great job of keeping themselves tidy and fresh and won't benefit from a lot of extra meddling. Brush long-haired hamsters occasionally to remove tangles and spot clean occasional dirty spots or try providing a sand bath to let your hamster bathe himself. Older hamsters and those with health issues may require more maintenance and some gentle, waterless cleanings, but take care to use only products suitable for hamsters when you do provide bathing and grooming assistance.
