1. Hamster Cage

2. Hamster Food

Just like any other animals, hamsters have their own special type of food. They have likes and dislikes. They have healthy food they love to eat, and also food that will make them sick.

So you want to know which type of food is best for your hamster to keep it healthy all the time.

Check out this free guide to discover the best healthy hamster foods you can give to your little friend.

3. Hamster Bedding

This is a very crucial item that you need to purchase for your Dwarf hamster, but you need to be careful what you use. It is important that you use bedding that doesn't contain harmful materials as these could lead to health issues for your hamster.

If you are going to be using wood shavings in your enclosure then avoid those made from pine or cedar the oils in these woods can lead to your Dwarf hamster suffering breathing problems.

Although you can use wood shavings paper is just as good. Brown paper bags are suitable same with corrugated boxes, but make sure that you don't allow any glued parts of these to get into your hamsters enclosure.

If you are going to use any paper that has ink on it such as newspaper then be aware that this can lead to health problems for your hamsters also.

As for nesting material for your pet you may find that unscented white tissue paper is the most cost effective option for you.

However, when in pet stores you will see in their Dwarf hamster supplies section they have some fluffy material which can be used for bedding. But again you need to be aware this can cause health issues if they eat it.

4. Hamster Exercise Tools

Another thing you need to do is ensure that you provide them with plenty of opportunities to keep them amused. So it is worthwhile providing them with some cupboard tubes that they can play in and chew on as well as wheel for running on.

You may find this hard to believe but a hamster can spend each day running on their wheel for a total of 5 miles. Exercising is very essential for their health. Find out more surprising facts about your hamster...
