Hamster Health & Hygiene

Your hamster's cage should be cleaned at least once a week using a pet-safe disinfectant, while water and feeding bowls should be cleaned daily. Traces of food and soiled bedding should be removed every day.

Because hamsters teeth continue to grow, you will need to provide your hamster with gnawing toys to keep them trim and to prevent them from getting too long, which will cause discomfort and loss of appetite.


Hamsters are good at keeping themselves groomed, so will not require any additional brushing or bathing, provided their cage is kept clean.

Neutering or Spaying

Hamsters cannot be neutered or spayed so in order to stop them from breeding you must keep males and females separated.
