How do you care for a siberian hamster?

I need tips and guidance on how to take care of my hamster, when does he need to be feed, how often etc.

This dwarf hamster can live for 2.5 years if given good care. Avoid sweet foods: fruit, carrots, corn, peas, and also avoid potatoes, tomatoes, beans and rhubarb. They need something hard to gnaw on, like nuts in the shell, although their diet is mostly seeds and grains and vegetables. They can fall due to poor eyesight, so be careful.

Caring for a Siberian hamster is easy. Keep your hamster in a cage with a 2-inch layer of bedding made from pine wood shavings. Be sure to keep a filled water bottle in the cage and placed at a height where the hamster can easily reach it. Your hamster should be fed hamster food mix once or twice a day.

Make sure it's cage is clean first and foremost, provide it with clean bedding. You can leave feed in the dish constantly. They won't overeat. They usually store food in the pouches in their cheeks. Fresh water is very important as well. An exercise wheel of some sort is important.

Siberian hamsters should be fed daily. They should be kept in a roomy cage with clean bedding that is changed weekly to help prevent disease. You should also wash you hands after handling the hamster.
