    It has proven to be a favorite by our 80 rats. We have tried all the other rat block and we are very satisfied with the quality of this particular brand. We have found that the quality of food fed to the rats will prolong their life. This has been our staple for the past 2.5 years. We just wish the price was a little cheaper while maintaining the same quality standard.

  • Great product for a great price from great people!

    I've always used Oxbow for my rats because it's the only corn free rat food I've ever found. Chewy sells the biggest bag for the cheapest amount. I've never found a better deal. Also the people at Chewy really care about their customers. Today I got a hand written post card from Chewy, and I thought that was so nice! I'll for sure be buying all my pets things from Chewy from now on!

    I really don’t have any complaints, my rats didn’t have any issues before this brand and haven’t had any since starting it. It’s the main portion of their diet with me preparing the rest in addition to it.

  • Love oxbow!

    My rats love this food! After switching from the block for young rats to this, they acted like it was a treat! The bowl was gone in 5 minutes. They have calmed down now. I have 5 rats.

  • 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.

  • Best rat food

    By on

    My 6 girls love this food. It's the best rat food you can buy. I've tried to switch them to other rat blocks that are cheaper and they refuse to eat it. I bought the big bag and dont regret it at all.

  • Mouse Loves It!

    By on

    I hand raised an orphaned baby field mouse. When it came time to put her on regular food, she would not eat any of the rodent blocks I tried. This is the fourth product I offered and was relieved to see that she loved it.

  • 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!

    By on

    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!
