vegetable list

Vegetables are quite important for hamsters, so should be offered on a daily basis.

Don't feed too many cruciferous vegetables as this can cause digestive issues

Always introduce new vegetables slowly to ensure that your hamster tolerates it well.

For hamsters new to vegetables, start with carrots & fennel as they are easily digested.
