Pet lovers may want to feed their bun hamster food because of the following reasons:
Hamster food may cost less in their area than rabbit pellets.
There’s a shortage of rabbit pellets in their local pet stores.
It’s more convenient to buy just one type of pet food.
Hamsters are omnivores. This means they eat all types of food. These include both plant and animal-based food matters, such as grains, nuts, seeds, fruits, and veggies, as well as insects.
Rabbits will eat not only hamster food but chow for your other pets, and sometimes even human food.
Although rabbits will gladly and willingly tuck away hamster food if you serve it to them, letting your bun dine on food meant for other species comes with some risks.
Because rabbits and hamsters have different nutritional needs, a regular feeding of hamster food can endanger your bunny.
