Default Dog Biscuits


I have read somewhere that it is safe to give small bits dog biscuits to Syrians as a treat.
What dog biscuits are best - UK please?

Thank You

There aren't many that are suitable & you do need to check ingredients carefully, the Biscrok ones are ok & used by quite a lot of people.
I also give mine these linseed biscuits .
Not too much or too often with anything like that though, an occasional treat is fine.

Like cypher has said there aren't many dog biscuits that are entirely safe/suitable for hamsters - the ingredients need to be closely looked at as some contain meat derivatives (which isn't good quality) among other ingredients which aren't safe for hamsters . I personally prefer to stick to natural hamster treats or seeds and nuts for my hamster.

Although the only treats that I give my hamsters which is marketed towards dogs are Whimzees plus Freeze dried chicken.

Ahh, thank you for letting me know. I'll just stick to hamster treats I think - better to be safe than sorry!

Dog biscuits are something I’d only ever give as a very rare treat to be honest. Even biscuits that are high quality and hamster safe tend to have protein and fat that’s a bit too high for hamsters IMO. There are definitely some smaller brands out there that are safe to give, but they take a lot of searching and analysis. Homemade biscuits are always an option! Searching through these forums may give you some good ideas for recipes
