Not too great for hamsters

Like other reviewers said, the main ingredient of this diet is Timothy hay which is what hamsters don't need. Oxbow does well in other diets for other animals like guinea pigs but they still haven't really gotten a grasp of the diet for hamsters. If you're looking for a high variety seed mix, I would go with Sunburst and Mazuri Lab blocks.

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

Quality from Oxbow

Not sure why people are wigging on Timothy hay, while advocating feeding foods full of soy (BAD for pretty much everything, especially female rodents), wheat middlings (literally garbage), corn and other fillers. Great food, Wilma likes.

Don’t get for hamsters!!!

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.

Oxbow falls short here

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. Please don't buy this.

Not nutritional

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.

A good supplement from Oxbow

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

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!

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).

oxbow Garden select for Hamster

My hamster loves this food. She will wait for me to drop it in her cage and immediately start eating it.. She prefers this food over the other I was feeding her.
