Hey guys! Do any of you give your ratties those mineral chew things?

I saw them at the pet store the other day and they look like ice cream cones made of salt. I didn't know if they were a good idea or not, but knew you all would.

Thanks! :)

They're usually mostly ash, so I doubt they're the best for any animal, but no, not required with a good diet. :)

I read somewhere that mineral chews were not required with rats because rats are omnivores and if fed proper (i.e, the good diet that Forensic and Lil' suggest) extra minerals do not need be provided. Mineral chews are recommended for herbivorous animals only.
