Rat Food Suggestions
 
Hi, I am looking to get back into rats after about 8 years. Im having trouble finding rat feed in the area. I have been looking online at feeding a mix and other things and have seen people feeding their rats horse feed. I am thinking about doing this myself. I would like to mix it with a graid diet as well suck as the RWS.
Here is what i have found. Please let me know what you think.

Regal Rat:
Protein Min: 15%
Fat Min: 4%
Fiber Max: 7%
Calcium Min: .8%
Phosphorous Min: .8%

The horse feed I feed my horses:
Protein Min: 16%
Fat Min: 5%
Fiber Max: 8%
Calcium Min: 1%
Phosphorous Min: .7%

[INDENT][FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"][B]Please do not feed your rats horse feed. [/B]There are certain things they cannot digest, such as alpha-alpha and other items that are generally in horse feed.

Regal Rat AKA Oxborn is [B]THE BEST[/B] rat food you can buy. It has the perfect amount of protein and vitamins needed for adult rats. They also have a baby rat food too.

A rat's diet should be 80% rat food and 20% fruit and veggies. Make sure you do your research on what fruits and veggies they can and cannot eat as well.[/SIZE][/FONT][/INDENT]
