Default Re: Mix Comparison

I've read a few papers now on protein intake for hamsters, but they are all quite old and I have yet to find anything specifically focusing on fat and fibre.

I think the fact that all manufacturers have such different balances of nutrients speaks to the fact that there is no consensus/evidence-based guidelines.

I am sticking to Silver's mixes because my hamsters like them and seem healthy on them, which in the absence of any evidence is enough for me. I don't want a mix with lots of processed ingredients or lots of things that get left.
