Why your hamster loves to chew

You have a hamster in your life who needs to be able to chew on things on a regular basis. You’ve noticed that she tends to do a lot of this. Why does she want to gnaw on things so much?

Your pet likes to chew on things in order to make sure her teeth are getting what they need. Because her incisors never stop growing, they are continually in need of some filing down to keep them at an ideal length. Chewing allows your pet to make this happen. Luckily, there are products on the market that will help her with this in order to prevent injuries from occurring due to her teeth growing to an unreasonable length. This means that you will need to make sure she has something appropriate to sink her teeth into. Your local vet Pasadena, MD can offer additional advice.
