Default Stool soft and light

Hi, first of all 😊

Second of all, I got my Syrian hamster a week ago on Thursday, and during that time period, until today, everything was fine, his stool was healthy looking, etc
But today I noticed that his stool was softer, and lighter in colour, and one bit of it was extremely long (??), I did give him some fresh veg (carrot) the other day, and I don't know whether he has stashed it and eaten it afterwards, or not, as well as that I've been slowly incorporating some nuggets into his diet, so it could be that as well. His behaviour is the same, and he's eating and drinking properly, running around, burrowing, cleaning himself. Is it a possible onset of wet tail or just dietary changes??

Thank you, Leo, and Chimmy

It sounds more like he's adjusting the to the new foods, giving a small (fingernail size) piece of veg every few days gradually increasing it to daily should be fine but keep an eye on him just in case there is something else going on.
Which nuggets & other food are you using?

Hi, thank you for replying.
I'm giving him Harry Hamster Meusli, and Sainsbury's own nuggets
