Trail Mix is a snack designed to take while hiking and includes a mixture of granola, nuts, dried fruits and sometimes chocolate such as M & M’s. But can hamsters eat trail mix?
The question and short answer is No.
The reasoning behind this is because of the fat content and also the lack of nutritional value for your hamster. There is not reason for your hamster to be eating trail mix because they aren’t great for their health.
It may be great for people to eat as its relatively cheap, easy to store for hikes and provides some nutritional value to humans but the same doesn’t go for hamsters.
Hamsters would love to eat this food and would eat it quickly if given the chance but it is best to keep this food out of reach when it comes to your hamster and stick with other more nutritional food options.
If you hamster was to eat a little bit of trail mix they should be fine but it is important to watch their behavior and if you notice any issues take them to the vet as soon as possible.
If your hamster eat a lot of trail mix it is best to seek medical advice as soon as possible.
Therefore as mentioned above do not feed trail mix to your hamster as it is not good for their health.
