    Oxbow falls short here

    By on

    Another reviewer posted "Unfortunately the number one ingredient in this food is Timothy hay. This is not necessary in a hamster’s diet, it’s just a filler. To achieve a good balance, mix Mazuri Rat and Mouse lab blocks with Higgins Sunburst hamster food." I couldn't agree more. Oxbow regal rat is a good diet if you want to stick with oxbow, and they make wonderful guinea pig and rabbit diets. But the garden select line is mostly hay/grass, which is not a natural part of the diet for hamsters, gerbils, mice, or rats. They also should be provided a good quality seed mix for foraging, variety, and some healthy fats. I also use Higgins Sunburst, mixed with a couple others.

    Don’t get for hamsters!!!

    By on

    The number 1 ingredient is Timothy Hay which isn’t good for hamsters. I would recommend Oxbow for Herbivores but, not omnivores like hamsters. Also, hamsters need variety along with a certain amount of protein. Seed mixes WONT cause picky eating.

    A good supplement from Oxbow

    By on

    Due to the high concentration of timothy hay in this recipe I do not feed this food as a complete diet. I feed a mix of Oxbow's Garden Select and the original Hamster & Gerbil food as an added fiber supplement for my small animals. This food is a solid additive to my pets' diets.

    Hamsters and Gerbils

    By on

    Both my hamster and gerbil love this. When I got my hamster Theo the first night he automatically ate this right away. My gerbils have been on it for years and do so well.

    Gerbs love it!

    By on

    I’m assuming if our gerbils could speak they would give this 5 stars. I like that it’s not the big nuggets like a diff brand that we had gotten previously (somewhere else).

    When I first started using this...

    By on

    When I first switched my gerbils over to this, my gerbils actually thought it was treats and not food. They would grab a piece and day back into their hide. They absolutely love this food.
