Hey guys, I live in australia and I have been searching for a good pellet diet but so far everything I have found has had lucerne (alfalfa) in it which I've read that rats can't digest this. The Vetafarm Rodent origins is the only food I have found here that doesn't have those ingrediants. just wanted to know what you thought about it?

Minerals - calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, sodium, and zinc.

It's not great. The protien is too high (you want around 14% for adult rats) and the fats too low. Also mainly corn and wheat isn't a great combo. If the alfalfa is way down the list of ingredients then it matters less.
