Pets of the week: Syrian Hamsters
Here at Shauna’s Petshop, we are passionate about animal welfare. Our animals’ wellbeing and happiness is always the most important thing to us. That’s why we ensure that our animals are going to the right family with the right enclosure!
Here’s a quick Do’s and Don’t on owning a hamster:
DO set up a space using an indoor run, empty dry bath tub or large cardboard box to use as out-of-cage time. Include different substrates where they can dig and search for hidden treats and carry out their natural behvaiours.
DO give you hamster a big wheel! In the wild, hamsters run up to 6km a night on average. They need a large wheel to run on comfortably to carry out this need for speed!
DON’T house hamsters together. ALL hamsters are solitary, they cannot be housed with another hamster once they’re over 8 weeks old in any circumstance.
DON’T use hamster balls. They are dangerous and stressful. They can cause hamsters to injure their feet and hands and can be very disorientating as they cannot navigate themselves.
