Overview of reviews
Everyday food Little One for hamsters, according to customer reviews, has a variety of fillings and is liked by pets. Other owners notice that the dzhungars do not eat the product completely, leaving oats and wheat in the bowl. The composition of the food is always clean, without dust, some call it “muesli for hamsters.” It is worth recommending for purchase. There are different opinions about treats. Most agree that the grain sticks are great for pets, but inside is a thick beech wood base. Why some owners are disappointed to say that the volume of the yummy is very small.
Others see this as a plus: a wooden stick is great for grinding down your pet’s teeth. Fruit and berry mixtures and carob fruits are more suitable for rabbits, chinchillas and guinea pigs; these products do not cause interest in hamsters. Vegetable mixtures attract the hamster and are eaten fairly quickly. Tunnel – this loophole is very popular with rodents, a small one is suitable for dwarf varieties, and a large one for larger breeds.
The only drawback: in the process of unpacking – removing the film, a lot of grains crumble.
