Feeding Instructions

Feed your hamster/gerbil 2 to 3 tbsp of Sunburst per day depending on the age of your pet. Younger animals will eat more. Always regulate the food portion to maintain your pet’s weight. Remove and discard uneaten food everyday and clean the bowl prior to refilling it. Always maintain fresh drinking water near your pet’s food container.

Transition Instructions

While introducing a new food to your pet friend, gradually mix new food with your pet’s old diet. Increase the amount of food over a period of 7 to 10 days. This will allow your pet to adjust to the new food and it will prevent any upset to your pet’s digestive system.

    Good nutrition source

    By on

    Good variety of fruits, seeds and nuts..... I feed it to my feeder rats to gut load them with nutrients so my snakes recieve more than protein from the rats. Sorry of you are buying it for a pet but I recommend it for pets too! The rats love this stuff!

    One of the Healthiest Seed Mixes

    By on

    This seed mix is one of the best for hamsters based on variety and guaranteed analysis values. It still needs to be mixed with a high-protein lab block for the best results, but is much healthier than other options on the market. I feed this to my Russian Dwarf hamster.

    Great product! Would reccomend to everyone

    By on

    This is the ONLY food I feed my hamster and is crazy over it. The food is so healthy compared to other pet store shelf brands. Paired with mazuri lab blocks you have a close to perfect hammy diet.
