I've just been reading the Shunamite diet and realised that my girls are basically eating that. PAH rat nuggets are already part of their staple diet so I just need to swap the Reggie Rat to PAH rat museli, they regularly get Shredded Wheat, cream crackers, veggies, dog biscuits and dried banana as treats...so all I need to do is throw some into the mix.
My girls aren't going to be impressed with me soon, but in the end they'll realise it's good for them and I'm improving their lives.
I just need to use up the dreaded Reggie Rat.
What really bothers me with Excel SupaRat is that they don't really list the ingredients.
Cereals, Vegetables, Derivatives of vegetable origin, Meat and animal derivatives, Oils and fats, Minerals, Fructo-oligosaccharides (ProfeedÂ® min 0.3%), Methionine
Um? Could you get any more ambiguous? It's not telling us anything about the ingredients. What kind of cereals, vegetables, etc? It's definitely not a full ingredient list. I tried emailing them on it for a clearer picture and never got a response.
I'll have to agree on that. Although, I'm due to review my rats diet after christmas - so will be doing some active investigations into readily available UK rat food. If there are any nasties in there, I'll wheedle them out
I'll definately let you know what I find out. Also, thanks for those links regarding Oxbow - one of those stores are right by me. I might check it out for price or see if I can get it through my vets (they're very good like that)
The Excel food - which I can buy in store for Â£4/Â£5 per pack I can get through my vets for Â£10 - for 4 packs! I don't think many people realise that you can get a lot through the practices if you just ask
