Hamsters are little enough, but the Dwarf Hamster is so tiny and fragile you need to be very careful when it comes to providing a suitable level of care. Naturally each pet needs special attention and care, but the more smaller the pet is, often the more watchful care it'll need.
Dwarf Hamster care is not an exception to this. They're extraordinarily tender and fast to hide when they feel exposed. This is the reason why it's important to be sure that their living accommodation is secure and free from little holes and spaces where the animal can slip through in a period of panic.
Occidentally it could be acceptable to house your Dwarf Hamsters in a tubular mouse house, smaller in size than the larger hamster cages, but big enough that there's still lots of room to put a slide, and a food bowl, and as significantly there's masses of room for exercise.
Hamsters naturally are energetic, fast and active tiny creatures and they should get regular and acceptable exercise.
This is the reason why it's important for you to include a wheel or a slide in your cage environment, as well as having sufficient room for your pet to frolic, and have some fun. Also do not be alarmed but it is possible for your hamster to run equivalent to 5 miles on one of those wheels, each day.
Ensure that your Dwarf Hamster care regime includes a little time to constantly change the bedding and any other waste from the base of the cage. Make sure that the bedding material is not fabric, or woolen garments, and also ensures that any wood chips are safe for the animal. Cedar and Pine materials for instance, are intensely bad and should not be used.
They adore to mess around with the bedding and make tiny nooks and crannies, make beds, and usually play with the bedding material. This could need to do with (a) they're naturally burrowing animals, and (b) also they are really shy small creatures.
Naturally your diet plan in your Dwarf Hamster care program must be up to standard. Although they're small creatures, they actually eat lots of food. Hamsters like to hoard their food in the nesting or bedding area, so it is critical to be sure that any waste is cleaned out continuously (like daily) when you replace the food with fresh food and water.
Remember too, that there are toys called Hamster Chew Toys, and from the standpoint that they help grind your pet's teeth down to appropriate lengths, they're also excellent for maintaining a secure environment. If you do not have these in the cage, the hamster will find other stuff to munch on and this will be unsafe to his health.
On a regular basis you need to plan to get rid of and replace all bedding, and also clean out the whole cage. Wash everything with hot water, and dry with cloth. Replace the old bedding with new, and ensure that your tiny pet is clean before placing him back in the cage with his fresh food and water.
