Freeze-dried mixed insects for omnivorous pets. In the wild, hamsters, gerbils, steppe lemmings and other omnivorous rodents hunt for various insects to supplement their diet at more or less frequent intervals. And our pets also enjoy some variation in their meals, since this is the only way to have a truly balanced diet. Thus, it makes sense to have as large as possible a selection of different ingredients in the main food and also to provide as many different sources of protein as possible.
Animal protein is an important part of the diet of omnivorous animals. Omnivorous animals are those whose natural diets consist of both plant-based and meat-based components. All species of hamsters and mice are part of this group.
Animal organisms are made up in part of essential amino acids, some of which cannot be found in plants. While these are of vital importance to a healthy body, omnivorous animals cannot produce them from scratch but depend on eating meat or other animal products to meet their needs. For this reason, a source of animal protein is an indispensable part of the diet of any omnivorous animal. As an alternative or addition to snack insects, you can also feed your pet dairy products, e. g. cottage cheese. Young and growing animals in particular need their reliable source(s) of animal protein. The older your pet gets the less animal protein they will need.
Especially aromatic and nutritious, our Rodipet insect mix protein snack contains three different kinds of carefully freeze-dried insects in one tin: equal parts of crispy grasshoppers, rich-in-protein field crickets and crunchy mealworms are all mixed together so you can offer your furry friend some variation without the need to have multiple tins in use at once.
Feeding recommendation: Depending on the pet’s species and age, feed between one insect a week and one a day per pet (occasionally two mealworms at once is okay, too) – and remember: active young animals generally need more animal protein than retired seniors.
Ingredients: freeze-dried grasshoppers (33.3%), freeze-dried field crickets (33.3 %), freeze-dried mealworms (33.3 %)
