Hi

We’ve just got our first rats and want to ensure they are getting the best diet and understand what they can and can’t eat fruit/veg/treat wise, we’ve been reading up but lots of conflicting information

Thank you :)

We have an article listing safe fruit and veg here, although keep fruit to a minimum as it is high in sugar.

If you want to buy something ready made for their main diet, I recommend Rat Rations #11. Don't use a bowl for their dry mix, measure out about 15g per rat per day and scatter it over the loose substrate on the bottom of the cage. :luck:

Rat Rations is an excellent place to spend all your money. :oops: :lol: They also sell substrate, which helps make the most of the delivery charge. Don't forget to get suitable vitamin supplementation with your food, since they don't pre-add it to their mixes like commercial mixes do. I personally recommend DailyRat3; you can give a few doses' worth at a time, a couple of times a week, sprinkled onto moist food, to save time.
