Is mouse food ok for hamsters too?

Post by onceuponamousery on Sat Mar 24, 2012 1:04 am

Does anyone know if a homemade mouse food mix consisting of

split peas
oats
lentils
veggie pasta
cereal
pumpkin seeds
millet
rolled or pearled barley
rolled wheat
flax seed
sunflower seeds
lab blocks
dog food
bird seed
dried fruits
buckwheat -hulled unhulled

would be ok for hamsters too? I tried to research online w out any luck. I want to change my current mouse food mix because it contains hamster food, a big bag and I'm allergic to 2 of the ingredients. Thank you!

I don't know about that, but I know the lab block I use is formulated for rats and mice and hamsters Wink

I think gerbils too!

I use my mouse mix for my hamsters too. My hammies are seed whores though, so I have to watch them. They rarely eat the oats, I don't know why. But they eat the lab block and everything else happily.

Used my mix on my hamsters as well. Even my rats got it as a treat.
