Default Are all the biscrock biscuits safe?

Hi

I recently bought new treats for my ham. I wanted something to help him trim his teeth. I had bought him greenies but he didn't like them, and I can't get whemzees where I live. So I bought pedigree biscrock biscuits, because I had read that they were ham safe. But I don't know if I made a mistake, because I bought the "originals " and originals have three flavours.lamb, chicken and cow.ñ, and I was wondering if all the flavours are ham safe or not, as I thought that they couldn't eat lamb or cow

While I'm not a fan of Biscrok and Pedigree in general,there are some other brands available of biscuits depending on country and where you can order.If Zooplus is an option and you would like a very good quality but still affordable lamb biscuit,there is one choice from Zooplus alone.

Happy Dog Nature Croq Snack Lamb & Rice | Great Deals at zooplus! These contain no biproducts or "derivatives",are natural,and are completely safe They're also very cheap considering the quality,but of all the Zooplus biscuits these are the only good quality biscuits.

When it comes to dog biscuits there are tons of options,but do keep in mind not all are created equal and not all will benefit your hamster in terms of getting significant protein.

A good website to use for hamster products regardless of country is Viovet.Viovet do international shipping,and there are some very nice hamster products you can get from Viovet including treats!

I use those & they are all safe but my hams will only eat the chicken ones which leaves me with a lot of biscuits to give away!

ok!! Thank you all guys!!

Amity thanks for the advice, I will have them in mind if I order from zooplus. I want to get a wooden wheel but this couple of months I've expended a lot of money with him, so I need to hit the brake a little bit.

Cypher, then, let's see what happens when he tries them. He is a little bit picky, so maybe he will throw the three flavours to my face Anyway they were pretty cheap (and compared with the greenies they are ridiculously cheap) and my friend's dog is in queue for them so, nothing to worry about.

All of the varieties are safe but some hamsters have a preference for particular flavours. The lighter brown ones seem to be the most popular but you may occasionally find a hamster who likes to be different. Sooty (my sister's Russian Hybrid) loves the lamb flavoured ones and James (my oldest Chinese boy) likes the beef ones.

Hamsterita, I am from Spain, too. I buy whemzees in a shop in Madrid, so if you want to try them, I can send you some by Correos. My hammy is mad about them! (And it is funny to watch her "fighting" with the crocodile, hehe)

Well, I started to give him the biscuits, and I started with half of the dark brown ones, let's see if he likes them or not

Lala thank you very much! You're so kind!!!! Right now I have enough treats, but it's good to know that you would help me to get the whemzees. Out of curiosity, where do you get them? My family is from Madrid and my dad goes there every couple of months so I could ask him too to get them for me. If not, maybe I'll contact you in the future, ok? BTW I'm glad to see spanish fellows around here
