I know you can give rats dog biscuits and the like, which I have plenty of (I have three dogs), but I have some weird treats like freeze-dried beef liver and salmon. Is this okay to give to rats in small amounts?

I would be hesitant to give liver to rats, because of the high levels of fat-soluble vitamin A. I know there's been some dispute as to how harmful eating too much liver can be, but for an animal as teeny as a rat I don't think I'd risk it.

Much obliged. :) What about the salmon? Do you think it's too high in fat, or no?

salmon is much higher in fat than other types of fish

offer the rats some veggies as treats or no-sugared natural grains as a treat

There are so many treat options out there for rats. Save the dog treats for the dogs.

That's why I asked beforehand.

Thanks.
