Default Re: not eating enough.

Oh I did wonder if she might be a dwarf from that picture! But, I thought that because you were worrying about her size she must be a syrian lol. For a dwarf, she looks fine to me. I have never had a dwarf, so I do not know what the best mix for them is. I am sure others will advise. The main thing with pet shop dwarves (which will be hybrids), is not to feed sugary things as they are prone to diabetes. Meal worms are a good source of protein. A bit fatty, so don’t feed to many, but if she likes them that is great. As you say, carrot is too sugary for hybrids. Lettuce is not great, to be honest. I avoid it. Things like broccoli and cucumber are good, though. Most hamsters love broccoli!
