Food for Rodents
This category includes specific food for different species, including guinea pigs, hamsters, chinchillas, gerbils, degus, ferrets, mice and rats. A balanced diet is necessary to ensure that your rodent receives all of the necessary vitamins and fibres. Choosing which type of food is suitable for your rodent depends on a number of factors, such as age and species.
Besides fulfilling basic nutritional needs for your rodent, food can also provide extra support for other aspects, such as encouraging tooth erosion or additional vitamins and minerals.
It is common for rodents to only eat the bits of food that they like when feeding them a mix. An easy way to prevent this is to feed your rodent homogenous food, meaning that it consists of only one type of pellet yet still contains all of the necessary vitamins and fibres.
Snacks complement a well-balanced diet and can serve as a tasty treat or a healthy snack.
