These blocks were used to help rescued baby squirrels. They had to get used to them, then they loved them and looked forward to them in their food. Great Chew Food and Good Complete Nutrition for them.
It has some strong fishy smell which is what I think the hamsters don't like about it.
I was surprised, apparently my yard squirrels have a discerning palate. I'll try again with the gang down by the lake.
There is no way that this food is suitable for all the very different animals it claims to be ok for. It certainly isn't ok for Squirrels. Squirrels will get MBD without the proper nutrition. They will eat stuff like this (junk, filler, no nutritional value, harmful ingredients) and things that seem like they would be good for them like nuts and they'll seem fine until they aren't. Basically nuts deplete their calcium intake and causes MBD. This is why they should only get certain types and very sparingly so that their diet stays in balance. MBD is a horrible death and extremely painful. Please look into it if you have a squirrel. Most people don't know about it until it's too late and it's always the same thing. Heartbroken owners saying "everything seemed fine' and it's the way "they always ate" but it always catches up with them. I am a big Chewy fan but there are a lot of products listed for various exotic animals that are dangerous. All the pet stores do the same thing and honestly the companies should not be listing such products for these animals much less putting their pictures on the bag. If you have an exotic pet, please join a group or forum and make sure you are getting reliable advice. Losing a pet is heartbreaking and even more so when you find out it could have been avoided.
My hamsters really like them. I find them gone from their bowls everyday. Granted they hoard their food but these do get eaten in more than some other brands I have used.
My baby squirrel is just reaching age to start eating solid foods and he loves the rodent blocks. I am grateful to know they contain the nourishment he needs.
My pet loves these so much. Great price and fast shipping.
Good healthy product for rodent's teeth and diet. My 2 guinea pigs eats them, helps with their constantly growing teeth.
I feed my squirrel Rocky from a dish that contains these rodent blocks and some walnuts along with other nuts and dried berries. Rocky eats more of these blocks than any other item in the dish. Highly recommended.
This is my first review! I brought this for my pet rat and he nibbled on it hungrily. The downside is those lab blocks has corn as first ingredients list. It is a good substitute when you are on a budget for a while. Try to get the leading diet ENVIGO-Harlan Teklad Global pellets as possible! Thank you for reading! :D
