Feeding Directions

Regal Rat - Adult Rat Food is intended for adult pet rats over 4 months of age. Most rats should have unlimited access to Regal Rat - Adult Rat Food. Environmental and genetic differences in rats may affect individual nutritional needs and the volume of feed may have to be decreased in rats prone to obesity. For a complete feeding management plan consult with an exotic animal veterinarian.

Regal Rat - Adult Rat Food has been formulated with guidance by a combined team of professionals with experience in laboratory animal science, zoo and wildlife nutrition. Members include a leading nutritionist with 25 years of expertise in laboratory animal science, formerly with the National Institutes of Health and a member of National Research Council committees. The result is a nutritionally balanced feed, designed to increase the longevity and well-being of the pet rat.

Research has shown that animals in the adult stage of life require lower levels of certain nutrients. Foods high in fat reduce the rat's ability to control energy consumption, resulting in obesity.

“The small rodent chow is wonderful. I love it being packaged in small bags for households that own only one mouse or rat product is very well received.”

“In response to your recent website information about the price/value of your products... I wouldn't think of feeding my rats anything BUT Oxbow Regal Rat - Adult Rat Food. My vet at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, MA told me about your product four years ago and I have fed all thirteen of them (not all at once!) your adult rat product ever since then. They may be small and some may think maybe they're not worth spending money on, but I know they have beautiful coats, bright eyes, and lots of energy. I believe your food help them live longer, too.”

    When I got my rats I was told by the girl I got them from that they had been on Oxbow and that she recommended it. It took me about 10 days to get some and meanwhile they were eating another rat food. When the oxbow arrived they were happy rats. I now feed both (to get rid of what I had left of the first) and when I get home the Oxbow is almost all gone and most of the other is still there.

    Seriously, I can't say enough. This food is wonderful! I have 5 rats, and they all have taken to it beautifully. They all are active, healthy, and eager to eat. I have not had any problems with food rejection. Buy this product, people, really. It's hands-down the best on the entire market.

    I rescued my girls about four months ago. They came with some of the food they had been being fed, so I decided to use that and do research to figure out what food would be best for them. By and large, everywhere I looked said Oxbow was the best for the money. They were so right!!! I bought a bag, and started feeding them Oxbow about a month and a half after I adopted them.They took to it almost immediately, and got to the point where they were rejecting the original food they had been fed and leaving it in the dish in favor of the Oxbow pellets. Their fur is the softest and shiniest I have ever seen it, their eyes are bright, and they are the healthiest and happiest I have ever seen them. I will never go back to feeding my rats anything else!

    Its very hard to find a healthy food for your rats none the less one that's readily available in pet stores. I love that its available in large amounts like the 20 lb bag, This is very helpful since i have several rescues at a time. I can always see an improvement in my new rescues coats after a few weeks of eating oxbow. Oxbow has been recommended to me by rescues, breeders, and online rat blogs like goose moose. In my opinion its the best food you can give your rats!
