One of the best

I've had rats for about 4 years now and I'm up to nine boys. Mazuri (and oxbow) are the two brands that breeders recommend. I just switched to Mazuri from oxbow for a change for my boys. These pellets are large so feed less to maintain weight. My boys love it.

Great company

I wouldn’t buy from any other company, always fresh and delivered quite. They always have what you need and more.

Rats seem to like it

Bigger than what we are used to so was not sure if my boys would eat it. Thus far they are eating it without any qualms. NO issues with the switch and all are as active and bright as always.

Works great for mice, hamsters, and gerbils!

Primarily bought for my mice, as I currently have 15, but also used for my four hamsters (all different species), and now my two gerbils. Palatable to all of them and reliable among keepers of all species, despite being marketed primarily for rats/mice. Interestingly it isn't always liked by rats, but then they're prone to getting picky and preferring high sugar! Bought the 20lb bag as it's much cheaper than other brands in this size (labs and zoos use this brand so go figure) and honestly given my critter collection, I'm gonna use that much this year. No issues with the bag, I'm used to the smell and opening style from dealing with livestock feed. I'm sure there's tons of dust at the bottom, but I haven't gotten there yet and I'll probably end up making "cookies" or something with it once I do LOL.

Great food!

This food has been great for my pet rats, mice, and even hamsters. I love the option of the 25 lb bag for a more economical price when feeding so many small animals and even better that Chewy ships it right to my door!

The bag I received was crushed, and the pellets inside were turned into powder, I can’t even use this. Waste of money.

rat food , was great until one bag split open

I love this app don’t get me wrong I have always have great reviews here, the mail people need to be softer with packaging tho. I order 3 rat food bags. One of the bags I order was split open from either it being thrown around to much or bag mite of have a hole already and just fully riled
