Hamsters are natural foragers and it is therefore recommended their daily allowance should be split into two portions, one in the morning and one in the evening. To limit the likelihood of selective feeding, ensure that the first portion is finished before feeding the second. The average adult hamster will require 0.2-0.35 oz. (5-10g) of Hazel Hamster Original per day.Fresh water should always be available. After opening, please store in a cool, dry place.
