How can water be given to a Hamster?

The most well-known way of giving water is the drinking bottle. This is easy to attach to the enclosure and gives the hamsters access to their drink throughout the day. A drinking bottle is also very hygienic, as no dirt can get to me. It is very important that the drinking bottle is cleaned regularly, otherwise algae and bacteria can grow in it. These micro-organisms are harmful to the health of hamsters.

Hygienic
✔Always access to water
Controllable water intake

Another great advantage of a drinking bottle is that you can control the water intake. So you can see how much your hamsters drink and that is important to keep an eye on their health. Animals that are sick and no longer drink are especially vulnerable and can quickly endanger their lives due to dehydration.

Can a food bowl be used as a water bowl for the Hamster?

It is also possible to give the Hamster water from a drinking bowl. It is very important that the drinking bowl is changed several times a day and placed on a stable surface. Placing a water bowl on the bedding is unfortunately not an option because the hamster then undercuts it.

Is a water bowl dangerous for young animals?

Yes, a food bowl that is used as a water bowl can be dangerous for young animals. This is the case when a litter is born and the young already start to walk around a bit, then there is a chance that they end up in the water bowl with all the consequences that entails. If a nest is available, we recommend placing the water bowl on a plateau where the young cannot reach and only offer it when the young are big enough to drink independently from a water bowl.

hang a hamster's drinking bottle

As can be seen in the image above, the drinking bottle for Hamsters can be hung in two ways. One way forces the Hamster to stand on its hind legs and the other way gives the animal the opportunity to drink on four legs. What is better? Can you also hang the drinking bottle somewhere in between? We answer all your drinking bottle questions!

Hamsters get a large part of their moisture from their diet . Seeds, plant parts and insects already contain some moisture. That is also possible at our house. After all, food always contains a little moisture, there is no such thing as completely dry, otherwise it would be dust. If you also give your hamster green food, for example, then he will get a larger part of the required moisture from the green food. You may notice that your hamster drinks less. That's because he gets enough nutrition from his greens. Live insects such as mealworms also contain a lot of moisture. Nevertheless, it remains important to always offer a water source in the form of a drinking bottle or a water bowl.

Another way Dwarf Hamsters and Hamsters drink is by licking or catching the dewdrops from plants with their paws. This requires the hamsters to stand upright and they do it well! A hamster, unlike a guinea pig, is made to stand upright. His whole build is geared to this and so standing up is a natural posture of a hamster. Drinking from a drinking bottle actually mimics the animals' natural way of drinking.

Drinking from a water bowl seems like a natural attitude, but in the wild hamsters rarely come across puddles from which they drink. After all, it is very dry in the desert and moisture has to be sought in other ways.

Can a Hamster get a neck hernia by drinking from a drinking bottle?

No absolutely not. No case has yet been documented and in practice this is not possible. In our blog " Neck hernia due to drinking bottle in rodents & rabbits " we explain further why this is not possible.

How high should the drinking bottle hang for the hamster?

As we mentioned earlier, the drinking bottle can be hung in two ways , namely slightly higher so that the hamster has to stand or slightly lower so that it can drink on four legs. Both ways are good, but everything in between can be annoying to the hamster because he can't stand on his hind legs and also just not on four legs, so it's just not.

We know this can be a challenge with ground cover, so it can be helpful to hang the drinking bottle in a place with a stable surface. So a place where the hamster is stable, for example a plateau or in a sandy part of the enclosure.
