Keeping a hamster clean can be a challenge, but it is not impossible. Using a hamster-friendly disinfectant is a great way to keep your hamster clean and healthy. You can find these products at most pet stores.
Depending on the size of your hamster’s cage, you may want to clean it weekly, twice a week, or even daily. If you have multiple hamsters, it may be better to clean the cage twice a week.
To keep your hamster clean, you’ll want to give it plenty of fresh water and food. You’ll also want to keep their bedding clean. Bedding can get very dirty, especially when hamsters poop in it. It’s a good idea to replace bedding every so often.
If your hamster is in quarantine, you’ll need to use a disinfectant. You can also purchase baby wipes to clean the cage.
It’s important to make sure that your hamster has a safe place to go when you’re cleaning. You don’t want to cause any injuries. You can put a transport carrier or exercise ball in the cage for this purpose.
When you clean your hamster’s habitat, you’ll want to disinfect the walls, tubs, and tunnels. You can use a mild soapy solution on these items. You can also scrub them with a bottle brush.
After cleaning, you’ll want to put the habitat back together. If you have wooden or ceramic items, you’ll want to wash them with hot water and non-scented soap.
