Family Matters: Small Pet Balanced Diet


Small Pet Balanced DietOnce upon a time, I got a hamster for my birthday, and it pretty much lived on my shoulder. It went where I went, played where I played and wanted to eat what I ate.

That’s not always a good thing for your small pet.

A balanced diet is important for your wee furry friend whether it’s a hamster, guinea pig or rabbit. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a great addition to our Thomas Moore Feed products. Be sure to check with your veterinarian about what fruits and vegetables are best for each kind of animal and what kind of people treats are pet-appropriate.

Brookshire’s Thomas Moore Feed Small Pet Feeds are all made of Timothy hay-based formulas. Timothy hay is important for good digestive health for your small pet. Our hamster and gerbil feed is a seed-based blend that will provide the right amount of proteins and carbohydrates for growth, energy and warmth, while our guinea pig and rabbit blends are pellet-based to ensure a balanced diet for those kinds of small pets. You should always provide Timothy hay for your guinea pig and rabbit to help with their digestive and dental health.

Make sure you are providing your small pet with enough fresh water and fresh Thomas Moore Feed products!
