Hi, i'm trying to do as much research as I can before I get rats. I'm finding it difficult to figure out what my rat's diet should be. I've heard so many contradicting things, it's just become complicated. What do you all feed your rats on a day to day basis? The main question I have is what sounds better to you for a staple diet, Oxbow Regal Rat? or Natural Balance Reduced Calorie Dog food? Thank you!

Most people who are rat-trition conscious use Oxbow. Supplemented with fruits and veggies.

I prefer oxbow. I really love it and feel it is the best choice for my rats. Im not a fan of feeding dog food to rats honestly & Im personally not comfortable with the higher protein dog food has.

Also the very best US price to buy oxbow is here: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=16965
If u throw in extras to get your order over $49 u also get free shipping. I usually get hay for my guinea pigs or toys for the rats. They have space pods & lava ledges!

Oxbow is really good but they younger formula my rats didn't like as much but they love regal rat. also if you can get your hands on it i also agree with mimsy. that food is supposed to be really good as well.
