We recommend feeding your small animal a food that has been scientifically formulated for your particular animal. Each small animal comes from a unique geographical location where they inherited unique dietary needs. For example, Guinea pigs require a food formulated with appropriate levels of vitamin C or they will get scurvy and rabbits need a diet high in fiber. (Food from the Wild Guinea Pig
) Hamsters and gerbils do have similar nutritional needs and can eat the same foods. (Kaytee Fiesta Hamster and Gerbil Food
