    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!

  • Happy ratties !

    By on

    I have been using Oxbow for a couple of years now. From what I have read, it provides the proper nutrition that rats need and I like that it comes in small, kibble sized portions that make it easy for them to hold and nibble on.

  • Fantastic deal!

    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.

  • Great product

    By on

    I was previously giving my adult male rats a different rat food that was not as nutritional as I would have liked. I was a little hesitent giving my boys something other than lab blocks. I bought a 3 pound bag to try the food out. They ended up loving it and would not touch their previous food. Switching them to the Oxbow food went a lot better than I expected. My rats did not have any digestion issues at all when making the switch. Buying the large bag of feed is really worth your money. The 3 pound bag lasted me about two weeks with two male Fancy rats. I am very pleased with my purchases and will only be purchasing this rat food from now on.

    My grandson's rat is very choosy about what he wil eat and dumps his dish if he doesn't like it. Lok has been finishing this food completely and is looking better; great to see a food that is specific to adult rats!

    I have been using Oxbow for years for guinea pigs, hamsters, and now my pet rats. They love this food and it is consistently praised by other rat owners as well as my exotic veterinarian. It keeps them trim, provides nutrition, and they love the taste. The 20 lb. bag lasts me a long time too and I'm happy they offer it in a bigger size!

  • Great stuff !

    Transitioning them from the young rat to the adult was difficult because they only eat the adult now instead of a slow transition. They love it and so do I :)
