  • Best rat food

    By on

    I've owned rats for five years now. This is the only rat food on the market that I'll feed them. It's nutritionally complete without the bad stuff and my current boys are outliving their expected lifespan having been on it since the start. It's also apparently very palatable. I've never had an issue with a rat rejecting this food.

  • Oxbow Adult Rat food

    By on

    I've been buying Oxbow Regal Rat food for years now. I always buy the 20lb bag, because I have 12 ratties. I use Oxbow as more of a snack food, so it usually lasts a bit in my house. You can feed the adult rat food to baby ratties, just making sure to supplement with extra protein.

  • Wonderful product!

    I love ordering from Chewy, Especially when it comes to the big bags of oxbow rat food, If it wasn't for Chewy I would be spending 20$ every week on a 3lb bag of oxbow that's completely empty by the end of the week, This amazing 20lb bag lasts 3 months shared between 8 ratties! And to make it better? I'll order it and the next day BAM its on my porch!!! Fast fast delivery! No long waiting nor disappointments. It's always well packed and secured as well. Thank you Chewy you guys rock!

  • Great stuff

    By on

    My rats love this product. I've tried them on several other kinds of food and they just picked through it. They practically went on a hunger strike. There's no waste, no smell, and not a lot of dust in the bottom of the bag. Very economical. Good stuff.

    My vet recommended Oxbow for my rats. They love this food! I've tried some other food and one left a powdery residue, others had questionable ingredients. My rats are so healthy and happy!

  • Babies seem to LOVE this

    By on

    I have been searching locally to find a good quality food for my ratties as well as one they will actually eat. After some research I choose to order a food rather than continue to give them what I consider sub par "bricks" they were not eating anyway. This was an excellent choice for me. My rats immediately started picking out the Oxbow from the other"junk". Didn't even bother transitioning out the old food. Definitely glad I chose this brand. They actually save this food in their house to munch on later! And no corn.....which has been a real concern for me with the local store brands. Definitely give this a try.

  • Fantastic deal!

    By on

    I currently have two rats and another on the way. Local stores are charging $18.99 for a 3lb bag of this same product. It's insane! I split one of these bags with my daughter and a friend who each have three rats themselves. We could not be happier to have found an economical way to feed our boys. Oxbow Regal Rat is one of the top two options for a healthy, balanced, rat diet. I have fed all six of my previous ratties this same food with much success. I have heard that some rats do not take to this brand. I have never had an issue. I feed my boys this as soon as they come home and supplement babies with proteins like hard boiled eggs, sardines or cooked salmon.
