Can Hamsters Eat Soft Cheese?

Soft cheeses most likely to be made from raw milk include feta, Brie, Camembert, blue-veined cheese like Roquefort and Gorgonzola, and Mexican-style cheeses such as queso blanco, queso fresco, and panela.

It can also include cream cheese which is a soft, mild-tasting fresh cheese made from milk and cream.

Stabilizers such as carob bean gum and carrageenan are typically added in industrial production. (source)

So can hamsters eat soft cheese?

They aren’t the best type of cheese for hamsters to eat. Harder cheeses are much easier for them to eat.

However, if they nibble some they will be fine, but they do contain quite a lot of fat so don’t let them nibble too much if any at all.
