Our SENIOR Mix is tailored to the needs of fully grown and older Syrian hamsters. It contains all the nutrients your Syrian hamster over 12 months of age needs; and less protein and high-energy components, making it better suited to his slowing metabolism than junior food.
Carefully selected delicious herbs, quality seeds, tasty roots and tender vegetables from organic sources remind us of the steppes of Syria, which are the original habitat of hamsters of the species Mesocricetus auratus.
Indeed, we have made a number of excursions to Syria to explore the natural habitat and the food sources available to the wild hamsters there in various seasons. The results of research into the Syrian hamsters’ natural habitat in the highlands of Aleppo form the basis of this food. These findings were used along with the guidelines of the Tierärztliche Hochschule Hannover (being the veterinary college of Hannover) as well as experience from many years of hamster keeping to create an ideal food for your little friend.
Feed 1.5 heaped measuring spoons (this equals 1.5 heaped tablespoons) and one to two insects of your choice per day. Please check weekly how much food your pet has stashed away in his larder: if the stores are, figuratively, overflowing, please reduce the amount of food slightly; if there is hardly anything stored your pet probably needs a little more food.
This tub contains approximately 90 measuring spoons worth of food, which lasts on average 1-2 months, depending on the animal.
