Overweight Male

Post by hheyes123 » Wed Oct 14, 2015 12:26 pm

just got a new rat who is extremely overweight! he weighs 600g and has rolls of fat everywhere. he's 3 years old so not very active. does anyone have any suggestions for weight loss? is there a 'light' rat food?

Normal good quality food in sensible quantities, limited healthy "treats" only and encouraging little bits of exercise will probably do plenty by itself. At his age I wouldn't be wanting him to lose weight too fast anyway, so I'd just monitor how he goes on your usual and adjust if necessary once you can see how it's going.
