    Providing HamsterCare

     

    • The first thing you need to do when you buy a hamster for sale is to set up the cage by placing roughly 2” of bedding to the bottom. Place an empty tissue box into the hamster cage to give him somewhere to hide. You can buy hamster cages for sale on Clickpets.

     

    • When providing hamster care you need to make sure that the hamster always has a good supply of food. Fill up the hamster bowl with food before you re-home the hamster for sale and keep it filled as it is not uncommon for a hamster to hide food. You will also need to provide a water dispenser. You can search for lots of hamster supplies for sale on Clickpets.

     

    • When you are providing hamster care, make sure that you handle him gently and often to ensure that he stays tame. A hamster that is not socialised will become reclusive and/or aggressive. 

     

    • When you buy a hamster for sale, remember that you will have to clean out the hamster cage at least once a week by removing all of the old bedding, cleaning the hamster cage and renewing the bedding. Remember to wash the hamster’s food and water bowl as well.

     

    • A hamster needs exercise and there are a number of different types of hamster supplies that can be used. An exercise wheel inside the hamster cage will be very useful. There is debate as to whether exercise balls are good for use by hamsters.

     

    • You will not need to bathe a hamster as they clean themselves. A dust bath is all a hamster will need to stay clean.
