Description

Feed your hamster or gerbil a healthy diet free of seeds, high-sugar fruits and artificial preservatives, colors and flavors with Oxbow Essentials Healthy Handfuls Hamster & Gerbil Food. While hamsters and gerbils love seeds and fruits, they can be high in calories and low in nutritional quality. Consuming too much of these foods can cause finicky eating patterns and obesity. Oxbow Essentials Healthy Handfuls Hamster & Gerbil Food is a complete diet balanced with nutrients that help maintain proper nutrition, weight, digestive function and dental health. It contains a blend of timothy hay, oats and barley to provide vital nutrients that support daily function and performance in hamsters and gerbils. Serve with Oxbow hays to encourage foraging and provide enrichment for relieving stress and preventing boredom.

Key Benefits
  • Specially formulated to mirror a hamster/gerbils diet. This will ensure that your pet lives a healthy lifestyle. Completely balanced and nutritious.
  • Fortified with stabilized Vitamin C, A and B12. This helps ensure that your pet's health and immunity system are in tip-top shape.
  • Includes high-fiber Timothy hay meal that promotes healthy gastrointestinal health. Keep your pet's health at optimal level.
  • Hamsters and gerbils are omnivores, which means they eat meat and plant material.
  • This product uses farm-fresh timothy hay to provide the fiber content necessary to maintain intestinal health and prevent digestive upset.
