Question Re: Mix Comparison

If anyone has any information on other mixes which I can add to it please let me know I have only added mixes that are in the UK, I can do a separate US one but will need some help finding the info



Notes:

The Ďsugarí column only matters when buying a mix for a diabetes prone hamster, the high sugar content foods in mixes are usually corn and peas which can be taken out (there's loads of topics on this in the Feeding/Nutrition forum). Ensure to check the ingredients though as some also contain molasses. RatRations sell a dwarf mix (Dwarf Hamster Basic) which is sugar free but I havenít listed it as the protein fat and fibre contents arenít listed on the website.

Mr Johnsonís Supreme Hamster and Gerbil Mix Ė the only online information I could find was for this product, most places seem to sell the ĎAmosí range and I canít confirm whether they are the same product or not.

Beaphar do not provide any information regarding protein, fat or fibre levels but from what Iíve seen they all contain corn, peas and other high sugar content foods.

I couldnít find protein, fat or fibre contents for the following mixes which are sold on a few online stores:

Quiko Sunny Greens Hamster Food
Quiko Sunny Greens Dwarf Hamsters Gerbils & Mouse Food
Mayfield Hamster Food
at the moment i use wagg hamster gerbil mouse munch as it is the most accesible one to me. i dont supplement it with anything should i be doing so? and if so what shoud i be supplementing it with? i am quite new to hamster care so i dont know much about what foods are the best for hamsters i have been doing as much research as i can but there is alot of debate and sooooo many foods to choose from so it is very confusing
thank u so much
