About This Item

  • This product has been formulated with guidance by a combined team of professionals with experience in laboratory animal science, zoo and wildlife nutrition. Members include a leading nutritionist with 25 years of expertise in laboratory animal science, formerly with the National Institutes of Health and a member of National Research Council committees.
  • This is a nutritionally balanced feed, designed to increase the longevity and well-being of the pet rat.
  • Research has shown that animals in the adult stage of life require lower levels of certain nutrients. Foods high in fat reduce the rat's ability to control energy consumption, resulting in obesity. Regal Rat - Adult Rat Food is a low fat diet designed to meet the nutritional needs of adult rats without life threatening obesity.
  • Made to be a complete kibble that prevents selective feeding behaviors that are commonly associated with seed-based diets.
  • Perfectly made as a specialty feed, with a taste they will love, designed exclusively for your adult rat's nutritional needs.

Questions & Answers

17 Customer Questions

Is this good for mice?
Answer by ChewyJun 12, 2018
This food is also suitable for mice.

How long on average would the 20lb bag last with one rat?
Answer by ChewyJul 16, 2019
The length of time a bag will last can vary greatly depending on the individual rat(s) and what other supplemental food or treats are added to their diet. Most rats should have unlimited access to Regal Rat - Adult Rat Food. Environmental and genetic differences in rats may affect individual nutritional needs and the volume of feed may have to be decreased in rats prone to obesity. For a complete feeding management plan consult with an exotic animal veterinarian.

I'm getting 2 baby rats one is 6 weeks the other 9 weeks can I give them this?If not what can I feed them & what age can they start eating this food
Answer by ChewySep 17, 2019
This food is suitable for rats four months of age and older. We recommend the Oxbow Essentials Mouse & Young Rat Food

I've ordered this food several times now for my rats. when I recieved the my order today i found the pieces to be smaller from the past.. has oxbow changed the sizing?
Answer by ChewyJan 10, 2021
There have not been any product formula changes to the Oxbow Essentials Adult Rat formula. Oxbow products go through a rigorous quality protocol before being packaged, including multiple visual inspections along with nutritional testing of the product to ensure each lot is safe and meets the nutritional needs of the pets they serve. The slight visual differences seen with the product are likely a result of the product being packaged on two different machine lines, in which individual machine calibrations may produce minute variations in shape of the product.

best rat kibble

I’ve been using this food for a while now and it’s the only kibble (other than fish based dog kibble) that my guys and gals will eat. I make a mix with it every two weeks and it’s really good at giving your pocket puppies the nutrients they need!

Food of Choice

Fairly cheap, and my rats eat it right up. Definitely ordering the bigger size.

Get the big bag

It's such a great investment if you get the bigger bag. I have 7 rats and it lasted me over a month. It's their favorite food

My Boys Love This Food!

I’m still pretty new to being a rat owner so I’ve been trying out different brands/products my two boys prefer and it’s been pretty difficult. They usually pick through the food and leave the majority not ate. They loved this one right off the bat! I’m thrilled knowing this especially since it’s a healthier brand. I will be using this as their primary source!

mice adore it!

i tried so many different mice food blocks and pellets and my mice didn't like them much there was a lot of food wasted and my mice started to get skinny i saw that mice could eat this as well and they absolutely love it and there is no more wasted food.

Great food and the rats love it!

I use this in combination with the Oxbow Garden Select pellets, since Oxbow makes the healthiest options for primary diets. All my rats have preferred these kibble over any other. I bought the 20lb bag and didn't realize how much food it is! I only have two rats so it will last a very long time. The bag is zip-locked which is super nice so it doesn't get stale or bugs in it.

The best you will find for rats

I bought this along with Science Selective rat food and mix them together with black oil sunflower seeds and Basic 4 GM cereal. Oxbow doesn’t smell great but the babies love it.
