    Rats love the stuff

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 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).

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. … more

    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!

    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.

    Great for rats

    By on

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

    She loves it!

    By on

    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.
