Hamster Winter

Winter products for Dwarf Hamsters & Hamsters

What about hamsters in the winter? Do they need some extras? We are happy to tell you how to help your dwarf hamster or hamster through the winter!

Which ground cover is good for the winter?

When we look at how the animals live in the wild, they have one thing in common. They dig tunnels and build burrows underground to regulate their ambient temperature. The animals can do that at our house too. We can help the animals with this by giving them a nice warm bedding, for example cotton.

Which nesting material provides the Hamsters with the most warmth during the winter?

In the wild, all dwarf hamsters and hamsters make a warm nest where they sleep. They also do this at our house, but when the temperatures drop (also at our house) a nice warm nest is very nice for the animals. We have selected special nesting material in this category that is wonderfully warm in winter and which the animals will visibly enjoy. Warm materials are made of kapok, cotton and soft paper fibers.

What Herbs Give Hamsters Support in Winter?

Herbs are also very suitable as extra support during the winter. Each herb can help in its own way. In any case, we have made a selection of the most popular herbs that are also liked by the animals.

Do Hamsters Need Extra Vitamins?

Actually, hamsters do not need extra vitamins in the winter. For example, we only recommend this for animals that are sick, weak, pregnant or lactating. This group can always use a little extra support. In addition, some dwarf hamster species such as the Russian Dwarf Hamster can create a winter coat. This process costs the animals extra energy.

Can Hamsters Hibernate?

Yes Syrian Hamsters can indeed hibernate. That happens when the animals get the idea that winter is coming. A combination of low temperature and less daylight can trigger this. To prevent hibernation in Syrian Hamsters, it is best to keep the temperature above 15°C.

What is Winter Paralysis (Torpor) in Russian Dwarf Hamsters?

This is a special phenomenon that can occur in the winter in the Russian Dwarf Hamster. We have written an extensive blog about Torpor .

How do you use a heat pod or pillow for hamsters?

A heat pod is actually made for the somewhat larger rodents and rabbits, but it can also be used for hamsters. We really only recommend this Pod for animals that are sick, weak or recovering from surgery. In all these cases, the body has too little energy to maintain itself at temperature, which means that an extra heat source is necessary.

Good nutrition plus protein

Hamsters are primarily granivores (grain eaters), but they also need protein in their diet. Always give your hamster complete food that is tailored to the nutritional needs of the animal. In the Hamster food category you will find all foods for dwarf hamsters and hamsters and in the protein category, we have made a selection of healthy protein sources.
