Default Grapes

I always thought that grapes were fine for hamsters. However, then I read this RSPCA web page which says:


Donít give grapes or rhubarb as these can be poisonous to rodents.


https://www.rspca.org.uk/adviceandwe.../hamsters/diet

I've never actually given any of mine grapes because it's not a fruit we have often in the house, however I assumed they were safe because I have seen lots of other people feeding them. Is this not the case? I don't want to give Quigley something harmful.

It could be a bit of confusion coming from the fact that grapes(and raisins)are quite harmful to dogs I'm pretty sure they're fine for hamsters though,if plain(no sulfur dioxide in raisins and nothing added to grapes of course).

I have always given mine grapes and raisins (sparingly) and never had any problems and they have always loved them. If I have one of those little boxes of raisins I leave the last one or two and seal the box back up for an easy puzzle feeder as they chew their way in

Thanks everyone

Flowerfairy thank you so much for that thread! Lol looks like it is identical to mine, so I'm not the only person to have seen the rspca page. Reading through it, I think I will hold off on the grapes with Quigley. Seems as though they are probably fine, but there's still too much doubt for me. I like to er on the side of caution!
