Lab rat quality

It’s probably the best vegetarian or even best overall rat diet and the bag is huge, it will probably last me 3 months I have two big Joie bags full of them and some left over in the bag still lol.

Only kibble my rats will eat

As the title says, this is the only kibble I feed my rats as they are picky brats and would rather starve than nibble at an oxbow or mazuri block. They are very happy with this and they are hard enough that they love to crunch on them, but my rat with tooth problems can still chew them with his molars. I do wish for the quantity that the price wasn't so high, as with four rats a single bag lasts about a month even when mixed with some extra grains, nuts, and vegetables.

Really great product

My rodents seem to love this food and they are very healthy. I think it's apple flavor possibly but it's one of the only ones they eat

I got this to transition my 2 ladies from young rat food since they’re about 6 months old and they eat this like it’s a special snack!

My daughtets rats absolutely love this food. She has to make sure she doesn't overfeed them with this food because they can easily overeat it, that's how much they like it. Definitely worth every cent. I highly recommend buying it, especially if your rats are picky about their food like hers are.

My rats love it!

Science Selective is one of two lab blocks available in the USA that meet modern nutrition requirements for pet rats. The other is Oxbow Essentials. Please do your rodent friends a favor and offer one of these foods to them!

Solid food for rats

I normally feed my rats the Envigo-Teklad block, which is getting harder to come by these days. During the holidays I was running out, so I checked out the Science Selective and gave it a try. The ingredients were similar enough to the Teklad to convince me. As per Chewy usual it came quickly. Despite an issue with the shipping label one of the customer service peeps got that sorted out and delivered to me immediately, and I haven't been disappointed. My rats love it. Would definitely buy again.

Smell great

I bought this along with Oxbow rat and mix them together with black oil sunflower seeds and Basic 4 GM cereal. Science Selective smells great and the babies love it.

Great rat and mouse food choice

Offering my rats a variety of foods is important to me. They like this a bit more than oxbow and it seems to be keeping them at a healthy weight. A lot of food for an affordable price.
