Rat diet

Rat diet

Rats have similar dietary requirements to those of mice; however, rats require higher fiber and lower fat, so limit those high-fat foods like nuts and sunflower seeds.

Rats do well on block type diets which also provide them with gnawing exercise.

This type of diet also eliminates the possibility of the rats eating only a preferential selection of seeds.

Rats crave sweets, so resist the temptation of feeding anything sweet. What he/she never gets will not be missed.
