If you have Russian white dwarf hamster, Campbell’s russian dwarf hamster, Chinese dwarf hamster or Roborovski dwarf hamster, then please make sure that you dont give too much food to him. Overfeeding can cause a fattening to your hamster so he or she becomes lazy and unhappy. Watch what food they like and dislike. If your hamster don’t eat something like “melon” then don’t give melon anymore. If he likes apple then give it, but not too much. Also if you give apple make sure there are no seeds inside.
If the veggetables you gave to hammy are dry or unfresh then remove them. Bottle of water should always be full.
