Proper nutrition for pet rats: tips and recommendations

25.06.2023 0 Comments

When it comes to feeding our pet rats, it is important to provide them with a balanced diet. A popular option to ensure our little companions are getting all the nutrients they need is Lab Blocks.

Lab Blocks are food specially developed for mice and rats in laboratories. They are considered optimal for keeping the animals healthy, as they provide all the necessary nutrients in appropriate amounts. The main ingredient in most rennet blocks is usually corn, followed by soy.

There are several advantages to using Lab Blocks. On the one hand, they are practical and easy to portion. This ensures the rats are getting the right amount of food without being selective in their eating and missing out on important nutrients. Plus, Lab Blocks are specially formulated to meet rats' nutritional needs and provide them with everything they need to live a healthy life.

There are various brands of lab blocks available in the market including well-known manufacturers such as Oxbow *, Mazuri * and Harland Teklad. These brands have a solid reputation for the quality and composition of their lab blocks and are recommended by many rat owners.

Of course, it is also important to offer variety in the diet of our rats. In addition to the lab blocks, we can occasionally offer you healthy delicacies in the form of fresh fruit and vegetables. However, it is advisable to research beforehand which foods are suitable for rats and which should be avoided to ensure their health. We will write a separate article for this.

Please note that it is always important to cater to your rats individual needs and to consult a veterinarian if you have any questions or uncertainties.
