Keep your mouse healthy and properly nourished by providing lots of healthy mouse food along with fresh fruits and veggies every day. Chewy offers many types of mouse food for sale including mouse food pellets, fruit and seed mixes, pet mouse hay for treats and more.
Mice in the wild eat an omnivorous diet, so you’ll want to provide a balanced diet with lots of carbs, protein, and vitamins and minerals to keep your little pet healthy. Most pet mouse food you can buy contains all these essentials, but you should always supplement packaged food with lots of fresh fruits and veggies every day. Some people like to feed their mice seed food mixes with dried fruits and veggies, but mice will often pick out the calorie-dense seeds and leave the rest, which can result in an unbalanced diet. Pelleted food avoids this problem and ensures that your pet will get the complete and balanced diet you want to feed.
Avoid feeding your mouse human food that may not be good for him. Things like chocolate, acidic fruits, onions, garlic, peanuts and raw meat may cause allergies or stomach upsets in your pet. Stick to food and treats made especially for mice and healthy fruits and veggies like apples, broccoli, cabbage and bananas instead.
In addition to always having healthy food available, you’ll also want to provide a sturdy mouse water bottle in your mouse cage along with lots of fresh mouse bedding for rest and digging and fun mouse toys for play and exercise. You can get all the mouse supplies you need to keep your furry buddy well-fed and happy at Chewy.com. Shop our great selection of mouse food and find the perfect type to fuel for your little pet’s adventures!
Frequently Asked Questions:
How often do you feed a mouse?
Feed your mouse once a day by offering blocks or pellets of food along with fresh fruits and vegetables. A normal adult mouse eats about 100 calories or 4 grams of mouse food a day, but consumption will vary from mouse to mouse. Growing, nursing, and active mice will eat more, so always provide enough fresh and dry food to meet your mouse’s unique calorie needs. Mouse food packages will also provide guidelines on how much to feed.
What food is dangerous to mice?
Foods high in fat and sugar are dangerous to mice, and things like chocolate, peanuts, acidic fruits and veggies and raw meat can cause reactions, upsets or diarrhea. Stick to mouse food, fresh mouse-safe fruits and veggies and the occasional seed treats to avoid issues. Hard-boiled eggs and pasta can make great occasional treats, as well. Mix things up to keep your mouse interested and always feed lots of fresh fruit and vegetables alongside pellets.
