Can I use rat and mice food for my dwarf hamster?

We got two mice but they smelled so bad we exchanged them for a dwarf hamster. Could we use the Kaytee Fiesta Gourmet Variety diet food for our dwarf hamster? I would slowly add it to what we are using but we're getting low and I hate to waste the mice food if it would work for our hamster. Thank you.

Hi Jenny83

 

Thank you for your question and welcome to the community. Congratulations on your new hamster! I would not recommend feeding them mice food. If you still have the receipt perhaps you could try to return or exchange it at your local store. You may also want to check out this article with more information on hamster nutrition. I'd love to see a photo of your new little cutie!
