I've researched a lot about rat diets, homemade and commercial. But I would like to hear some first-hand experiences with diets. I'd like to know what diets people are feeding their companions, and more than just what the diet contains but how it is fed - the amount and when, etc. This is my first time owning rats - for the time being I have been feeding them Nutro Choice Lite dog food as a staple, with fruits and vegetables and other things fed as a side or as a treat. It seems to be working well, but I want the best for my companions and I am continuing to learn what I can so that I can create a "diet plan" that is the best it can be.
