Hamsters and dwarf hamsters have a natural need to gnaw. This is because Hamsters are rodents and have continuously growing incisors. It is therefore necessary for Hamsters to be able to gnaw on something to wear down their teeth. If Hamsters have too few opportunities to wear down their teeth, the teeth may become too long or grow crooked, with all the consequences that entails.

Gnawing wood is used by rodents to wear down their teeth. Because rodents' teeth are always growing, they need to be gnawed regularly so that they do not grow too long and crooked.

Some Hamsters gnaw on wood very actively and others not at all. On the one hand it is a matter of taste, but on the other hand it is a matter of need. If a Hamster has no need to gnaw because its teeth are kept at their length through food, hay or other nibbles, it will gnaw less on wood. It is good to always provide natural gnawing wood so that the animals can always gnaw when they need to gnaw.

Do Hamsters and Dwarf Hamsters need gnawing material?

Because Hamsters' teeth are always growing, the animals must have sufficient gnawing material at their disposal. They must be able to wear down their teeth, otherwise dental problems can arise. There are many different types of gnawing material. The most suitable is gnawing wood in the form of willow, lime or hazelnut. Do not use limestones or gnawing stones made of lime. These contain too much calcium and salts, which burden the kidneys. Healthy gnawing stones are available in the form of corn stones.

How can you recognize dental problems?

If you notice that your hamster is very enthusiastic about taking the food, but does not eat it, then there may be something wrong with its teeth. Drooling can also indicate dental problems. If you suspect that there are dental problems, it is best to contact your veterinarian.
