Default Changing food over

Hi everyone,

I got my Syrian (Sirius) on Saturday from P@H, Iím wanting to change him from their own brand muesli to Harry Hamster.

How do I go about doing this? Is it like with dogs where you gradually swap over?

It's usually recommended to do it gradually over a couple of weeks so they don't get an upset stomach with the change. So you could start by mixing a quarter Harry Hamster with three quarters of the current food for a few days. Then a third HH and by the second week, half and half - then a few days later mostly HH then by the end of the second week all HH

Thank you! He seems to be quite selective with his food, the larger pieces are going untouched at the moment - it’s the sunflower seeds as usual which are first to go!
