Exclamation Help!!!

Hello! Please help my hamster is super sick, we took him to a vet; he gave him antibiotics and he said to substitute all his food with soft foods what can I give him? I am giving him baby food (chicken with vegetables) and while he eats it, and gets excited that I am giving him food he doesn't like it. Please help.

Default Re: Help!!!

Antibiotics can affect their digestive system so Try some soft scrambled eggs, mash his favourite veggies, try Cow N Gates; Cauliflower Cheese,
Chicken & Pumpkin, Sunday Lunch, Heinz's; Carrot & Sweet Potato, Broccoli & Cauliflower Cheese.
Still give your ham his food mix but add a bit of water and crush big bits.
Hope your little one is feeling better soon.

I don't know what baby foods you'd have available where you are but you may need to experiment a bit to find what he likes, check all the ingredients are hamster safe first though.
You could also try some porridge/oatmeal, mashed cooked veg & as Lizzy said soak his normal food in some water & mash it up a bit for him.

Completely forgot you were in Canada.
Avoid anything with onion, garlic and tomato.
