That sucks, they should have a press release or something. Perhaps they did and you didn't see it. Maybe they have a mailing list, with news and things? I don't know. If they don't they they are idiots. Sorry to hear about your dilemma!

i've never had a problem switching rats to different food. at most the first little bit the food was ignored while they waited to see if it was ok. once they realized i hadn't poisoned them and got over the sulk from the difference they were fine. i've never had health issues switching foods. i don't think you need to panic, just find a suitable food within the days you have left and don't worry about it. at most they're going to have loose stool for about a day, if that.

yeah twitch is right on the nailhead there. :) I take in rescues from all sorts of situations, I am sure the food I am giving them is never the same as they were used to. I might have some loose poop for a day or so but they bounce back quickly :)
