Can my new mice eat whimzee ' s dog bones? Cat treats like greenies chicken or tuna, or temptations treats by whiskas? 1 more question can they have baby Gerber puffs? My hamster loves his Gerber puffs and whimzee bones.

Whimzees are ok as an occasional chew, pretty similar to how it’s recommended for hamsters (not too often, remove if they try to gobble it all up too fast). I can’t remember for sure what it was with Greenies but I remember deciding to skip those and just stick with the occasional whimzee instead. I think whimzees have much simpler ingredients...?

I would skip the Temptations too. Pretty junky treat, IMO.

Gerber Puffs are usually fine and liked as a treat, just double check ingredients to be sure.

can mice eat these Empty Baby Puffs

My mice LOVE toddler/baby puffs. They like the Little Duck I Love Puffs the best. They have lots of real fruit and vegetable in them. I have also used Happy Baby. My mice eat 2 puffs a day. One for "afternoon treat" and one for "bedtime snack" I never want to give too much for their little mouse bellies. Some brands of puffs do have added probiotics. I never give them more than one that include the probiotics each day and i have never had any problems with any of my 10 mice. My mice did not like the Gerber ones as much...but that may be their preference. Plus they include added sugar. Plums is also taste and my mice like them but I use them only if I cant find the others since they also have added sugar. There are many other brands that I have not tried. I just steer away from added sugar.

I'm not sure what some of those treats are, but whimzees are certainly safe. If your mice were always eating the whimzee instead of their food, I'd start to be concerned as whimzees aren't nutritious. But they're certainly safe as a chew toy that gets worked on slowly over time.
