Rat Diet & Nutrition

Rats are omnivores (animal that feeds on both meat and vegetables). A specialist rat food will contain a blend of wheat, maize, peas, soya and chicken and should form the basis of your rats diet.

As a treat fresh fruit and dried vegetables such as carrots and apples can be fed, but they should only be given in small amounts.

Like many small animals, your Rat's teeth will grow continuously so a mineral block and gnaw sticks should be provided to prevent them from becoming overgrown and painful.

Fresh food and water should be made available every day, removing uneaten food from your Rat's cage.
