Yes, hamsters can eat carrots!
Hamsters can eat a wide variety of fruits, grains and vegetables; including carrots.
Carrots can be a great food for your hamster to gnaw on, which will help keep their teeth nice and short.
The only types of fruit and veg that you should definitely avoid are citrus fruits and onions, as their acidity could give your hamster problems with their digestion.
Before feeding your hamster carrots, you should first feed them a small test piece and monitor their reaction for a day or two. As long as they don’t show any signs of illness – vomiting or diarrhoea for example – then you can start adding more carrots to their diet on a regular basis.
This system of adding new things to your hamsters diet applies to all types of food. You should always feed a test amount first to make sure that new foods don’t make your hamster ill – even if you’ve seen other hamsters eat that food with no problems.
