    I am a small hobby breeder and I have been feeding this food exclusively to my rats for a little over a year now (started beginning of September 2020), so I thought it was time for a review.

It was becoming increasingly difficult for me to get their regular food, so I began searching for something I could feed instead. I happened to find Kruse here on Chewy and, compared to what they were eating before, the ingredients were pretty similar, so I decided to give it a try. Right off the bat, the shipping time for this food is annoying, so make sure you have at least several days left before ordering more, or get two bags first then order a bag when you run out of one. The smell of the food is interesting, can't quite put my name on what it is, but it isn't unpleasant (my mom thinks it smells like chocolate but I disagree). There is very little dust in the bottom of the bag compared to their old food and it seems to last longer. Rats are doing really well so far. There has been no loss in condition since switching, no health issues to date, and litters are doing fantastic. I dump the food in a Vittles Vault and it lasts my colony around 3 months, give or take (depending on how many rats and litters I have). … more

    Bad Food, highly NOT reccomended

    By Hammer on Sep 28, 2021

    I bought this food to mix into my usual food, as a "filler" It is very dusty, it looks like horse pellets, and and when I feed it by itself my rats lose weight and act ravenous, we've also had several tooth problems arise with it. We tossed what was left of our bag, and are stickin to Mazuri and homemade I bought this food to mix into my usual food, as a "filler" It is very dusty, it looks like horse pellets, and and when I feed it by itself my rats lose weight and act ravenous, we've also had several tooth problems arise with it.

    My colony enjoys

    By on

    My rats enjoy this food and it is much cheaper then anywhere else I've looked. I keep the bag cut open in my rat room with no issues of mold, it lasts for awhile. We get the 49 pound bag but the only downside is you have to order before you run our as the shipping time is longer then other products from chewy that we have gotten.

    Terrible quality, molds quickly, stinks

    By on

    I bought a small bag of this to try with my mouse colony as it is much cheaper than mazuri blocks. I'm glad I didn't buy the big bag, because these blocks are not good. They molded within a week of being in the plastic bins I always keep my blocks in, they have a strong, unpleasant odor and the mice barely touched them. I was really hoping they would work out so I could save a little feeding my colony, but you really get what you pay for in terms of quality with rodent blocks.

    I wasn’t 100% sure how I was going to like this product because the reviews were up and down but my mice and my rats seem to love it! Picture of my young female rats for fun.

    rat's don't like it

    By on

    Sometimes they'll nibble at a piece, but it's not suitable as a food for them. They only like teklad and oxbow (normal - they didn't like the garden one) so far.
