Feeding Instructions

Feed free choice to rats and mice, along with plenty of fresh clean water. Supplemental food items (grasses, vegetables, fruits, and seeds) may be provided, but should not make up more than 20% of the diet. Diets containing higher amounts of fruits, seeds, and other high calorie treats may predispose animals to obesity and other nutritional health disorders. The amount of food consumed will vary due to size of the animal and life stage.

Rats: Adult rats generally consume 16 - 25 grams of feed per day (approx. 4 to 6 pellets)

Mice: Adult mice generally consume 4 - 5 grams of feed per day (approx. 1 to 2 pellets)

Thoroughly wash feeding and watering bowls on a regular basis. It is always a good practice to wash hands thoroughly after feeding and/or handling pets. This diet is not for human consumption.

  • Terrible for Rats, Great for Hamsters!

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    This diet is completely unsuitable to Rats and it's not that great for Mice, but it's a great diet for Hamsters! I rescued a small female Winter White Dwarf Hamster and she was stuck in a small habitrail and was being fed terrible Kaytee food. Now she lives in a 55 gallon tank, has a much better diet, and much better care. Hamsters require high protein (around 28%), high protein (around 25%) and low fat (around 4-6%) to keep a staple diet. I always add a very large variety of pellets (12 brands of different pellets), along with dried Mealworms, sometimes dried Crickets, as well as a big bowl of Timothy and Alfalfa hay. She seems very healthy and happy now!

  • Almost perfect

    By on

    Mazuri is a reputable brand, and their food is nice. However it does contain too high of a protein count as a consistent diet for rats. I ordered mine to help one of my rats gain weight. I would not reccomend solely feeding this as their diet. Not sure about for mice as I do not have mice.

  • Great for Syrian hamsters

    By on

    Healthy Syrian hamster enjoys these lab blocks, I combine them with half Higgins Sunburst Hamster (Sunburst is good stuff but weirdly not enough protein, like any hamster seed mix). Usually I would cut these blocks in half so he could manage them better but it looks like they made them smaller this time - cool!

  • Ingredients Are Amazing But My Pets Wouldn't Eat

    By on

    I have had tons of people recommend this food for rats, mice, gerbils and hamsters. Ingredients are good and should be a great product but my mice gerbils and rats wouldn't touch it I tried a few bags and no one would ate it. I now stick with oxbow and it's always eaten

  • I use this for my hamster

    By on

    Chloe, my Syrian hamster, loves these. I give her a block and wait until it's gone to give her another. It gives her the extra protein she needs. It's also good for her teeth cause she loves chewing on these. Shes very picky when it comes to chew things so I'm glad I found something shes willing to chew.

  • Great food for mice

    By on

    My mice and I love the product! The only reason I'm giving a lower rating is because there was a small tear in the bag, and ants had gotten in the box while it waited outside. After freezing the food for 48 hours, everything was fine. :) It may have just gotten nicked with a cutter during the shipping process. Not a big deal!

  • Mazuri Rat & Mouse

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    My mice weren't fans. They prefer seeds and berries to block food. We tried this out for a long period of time, even withheld food for a day and they just starved themselves. They never touched the blocks. The health benefits seem great but unfortunately it didn't work out for us.

  • Baby Squirrel first food

    By on

    These are awesome for first solid food for baby squirrels. They are just soft enough so their small teeth can eat them as they are learning to chew.
