Good Combined with Foraging Mix

Unlike the other Oxbow hamster formula, the Garden Select formula actually does not have hay as the first ingredient, as I see other reviews here saying. I like to provide my hamster with a combination of a formulated pellet and a foraging mix (I don't say seed mix as that implies something like a bag of bird seed. I rotate through a few mixes on Etsy that have not just seeds, but also dried veggies, herbs, and protein sources). Giving unlimited amounts of foraging mix allows them to only eat their favorite parts, while strictly limiting their foraging mix encourages them to eat all the different pieces, but runs the risk of not giving your hamster enough food. I like to provide a constant supply of a nutritionally complete, albeit perhaps not as tasty, pellet; that way, I can carefully limit their foraging mix without worrying that they aren't getting enough food. Something like this, Oxbow mouse food, or Mazuri all work well for this purpose. I personally wouldn't feed this or any other pelleted hamster food by itself.

Vet Recommended

I have a special needs hamster so she frequents the vet and this is one of the most recommended hamster foods out there. I originally got sunburst seed mix and my vet said it’s fattening and that your hamster will pick out only the bits they like so their nutritional needs aren’t being met. It’s fine to give your hamster seeds and other things as a treat, but this type of food should primarily make up your hamsters diet, according to two separate vets.

Garden Select Is A Winner

My Hamster named “Nugget,” loves this food. He keeps his stash hidden near his resting area so he does not have to go far to munch quietly on his hidden pile of Garden Select. I would recommend this food for your furry little guy or gal for a future food selection.

Yes my girl loves it

So was a little concerned at first but I've noticed my hammy princess absolutely loves this food, she's a White Dwarf cross, she will eat just the grain and toss out everything else then go grab a snack in her house...she's very healthy just snappy lol

The controversy on Timothy hay

Timothy hay is GREAT for digestion in hamsters. Oxbox should be mixed into a daily seed mix, but if you dont have a seed mix id advise looking on etsy. Most hamster brand foods have to much soy or seeds like pumkin seeds/sunflower seeds. Which are more of a treat to hamsters.

not safe for hamsters

This is not a safe food. There are so many better options out there, oxbow is usually a great brand and I recommend it for any other small pet just NOT hamsters. This foods first ingredient is hay, hamsters cannot digest the hay properly so they are not able to absorb the protein they need from it. Hamsters need a high quality lab block like Mazuri and a high diversity seed mix like Higgins sunburst. Your hamster will thank you. My little guys sure does!

Best Hamster Food

Not only is this well balanced diet healthy, but it's also not Genetically modified. Meaning, it's grown outside the confinement of mainstream regulations which is not always the best for your health. I'm so glad Chewy offers products like this
