Default Is Vitakraft for guinea pigs bad for hamsters?

Hello

I just bought by mistake the bars for guinea pigs and just realized when I put them in the cages. I read the ingredients and could not see anything "bad" but just want to make sure. Any advice? Thanks!

Do you mean the treat sticks rather than the actual food? If so it's probably ok as long as the ingredients are fine.

Those sticks contain ingredients that are all technically safe, but contains honey, and honey is very sugary and unhealthy for hamsters. Especially dwarf hamsters which are prone to diabetes, there are many healthier options for treats, but if you REALLY want to feed them to your ham, they'll be okay
