Description

Feed your young pet a diet that has the protein and energy they need to support their growing needs with Oxbow Essentials Mouse & Young Rat Food. Growing, energetic young mice and rats require higher levels of certain nutrients than adults to keep them healthy. Oxbow Essentials Mouse & Young Rat Food is nutritionally balanced and contains optimal protein, fat and energy sources to help mice and rats under six months thrive. Its uniform format prevents selective feeding and finicky eating habits that are commonly associated with mixes and seed-based diets. Feed young mice and rats as well as pregnant or nursing pets an unlimited supply.

Key Benefits
  • Specially formulated to mirror a mouse and young rat's natural diet. This will ensure that your pet lives a healthy lifestyle.
  • Fortified with stabilized calcium, Vitamin C, D3 and E. This helps ensure that your pet's health and immunity system are in tip-top shape.
  • Uniformed format prevents selective feeding and finicky eating habits.
  • Mice and rats are omnivores, which means they eat both plant and animal material.
  • Completely balanced and nutritious.

    Rats love the stuff

    By Twiggles on Sep 26, 2021

    I got a couple rats from someone who could no longer care for them, and the food they were being fed was definitely not the diet they needed (a majority of their food was sugar-filled). I had been feeding my other rats this stuff for awhile, but I was worried these new babies I got wouldn't want to touch it. However I was pleasantly surprised that they loved the stuff. The pellets might not look that appetizing at first glance, but this is a great full-diet food for rats and mine definitely love it.

    Little one approves

    By Patty on Jul 19, 2021

    Took a few days to get my baby rat to eat, but once she started, she loved it. Just what I was looking for in a healthy blend of food designed with a baby rat in mind. Thanks!

    She loves it!

    By mkids1301 on Apr 28, 2020

    The little mouse we have temporarily seems to love this food! She even tried to carry a chunk up the tube to the top compartment of her cage! I helped her out with that.

    She loves it!

    By Shoemarsh on Dec 14, 2019

    Our pet rat Shyanne (Shy-Shy), loves this food! We used to get the kind that’s full of seeds and thing, and she seemed to only want the sunflower seeds, and would just waste everything else. She would make a huge mess with the shells and other parts of the food she wouldn’t eat, now she’s so excited about these pellets she hordes them in her little nest, and rarely leaves any in her dish.

    Great for rats

    By Chris on Feb 24, 2020

    This food is great for rats under 6 months old because of the greater protein content.
