Oxbow Essentials Hamster & Gerbil Food is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect nutritious balance for small pets I have looked high and low for a good food for gerbils and hamsters. Other brands are full of artificial colors, ingredients that offer no nutritious value (corn), high fat sunflower seeds, and bits of artificially colored bits that likely offer not nutrition either. Hamsters are at a high risk for developing diabetes and having a premature short life span. This is due to poor diet! Oxbow has hit all of the important ingredient elements for small rodents using whole ingredients such as timothy hay and flax seed. My hamsters coat is beautiful, soft, and shiny (likely due to the omega 3's in from the added flax seed). Both my hamster and gerbil are healthy, active, and love this food. They eat all of it to. I do not constantly have to throw out the bits they don't like.They eagerly take this food from my hands and run off and eat it. Thank you oxbow for finally giving small pet owners a healthy option for our pets that will maintain their health and happiness. I no longer have to worry about them not getting the vitamins and minerals they need because they are added to the food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Syrian Hamster likes it 4 stars for the price of the food. I mix this with National Geographic Hamster Mix, as well as Hazel Hamster Mix. This Oxbow Essentials, along with the two mixes, all received decent reviews and appeared to have decent enough ingredients which is why I bought all three. Despite how both the mixes have enticing items in them, my hamster still will pick up these pieces at the same time as everything else. He'll leave a couple things from each mix (mainly pellets), but these pieces don't get left behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HEALTHY! My Syrian hamster loves this. I wanted to get him something healthier than the mixed junk that he was eating before. I was worried he wouldn't like this but he loves it! He still gets dried fruit and vegetables and seeds as treats occasionally, but I want my hamster to live more than the standard 1000 days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!!!!!!!! My long haired syrian hamster loves this! I purchased this food because they had it in the cage i got my hamster from. he absolutely loves it and it is so cute when he stuffs his cheek pouches with it they look so big!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loves it! My rat Skippy was a rescue and his previous owners never fed him so it has been very difficult getting him the correct nutrition. We started with a homemade mix which was great at first then he became more particular about what parts he ate, then we did lab blocks which he didn't seem very fond of at all, so the rescue we worked with told us to try this Oxbox for Adult Rats. AMAZING! He gobbled up the whole bowl overnight! Not only does he like the taste but the nutrition is exceptional! We still add extra veggies and some fruits, but overall this diet can be used a staple diet with minimal additions if any.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied Just purchased this item for my 3 rats. They love it! Went right to it and started eating. The smell doesn't bother me. It smells like dry dog food. The kibble shape is great, there is no waste. Seed brands end up scattered all over the cage and floor. This product is much more tidy. I no longer have to vacuum daily around the cage. Nutritionally, this food is complete and not as fattening as seeds. Only complaint is the price. But, you get what you pay for. Overall, very happy though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the extra cost My rats love this food. I initially bought a cheaper brand filled with "junk food" like sunflower seeds, which isn't particularly good for rats. They barely touched it so I went back and got Oxbow Regal Rat. I tried feeding them by hand and they snatched it up happily right away!! Now I need to fill up the food bowl much more often and I'm happy knowing they're getting a proper diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from <3 oxbow!!! My syrian and dwarf don't really like to eat this. They prefer the junkier brands. But they will eat this over alfalfa pellets found in seed mixes. But I know that this is healthier for them and am stone still when they beg for junk food. Well maybe I slip in some treats. This is a bit pricey but way better for your hammy than alot of other brands out there.
