After much research, I decided Oxbow Regal Rat was the best food for the nutrition content my ratties need.

Gus said, "I generally grab the Oxbow and hoard it, along with the Mazuri cubes. I prefer to eat fresh food. But it's nice to have something to fall back on .... Assuming Laslo doesn't plunder my stash, the twit."

Laslo said, "My pen mate doth protest too much. He wasn't gonna eat that other stuff anyway, and if he wanted to protect his hoard, he should hide it better. And don't listen to anything he said about the vet weighing him 80 grams lighter after a couple of months. It had NOTHING to do with my, uh, borrowing his Oxbow pellets."

Fawn said: "My owner drops the Oxbows all over the cage for me to 'hunt and gather,' so I do. When push comes to shove, I eat 'em -- especially when my owner cuts off the food supply to get me hungry enough to eat yogurt stuffed with yucky-tasting medicine. Don't need meds, don't want meds. I hate the vet. But Oxbow is okay. They say it has all my nutritional needs met. Hmmph. I still prefer cooked salmon and yam balls sweetened with brown sugar. Yum. Hey, was there medicine in that yam ball?"

Ears said: "First, I want to object to my owner changing my name from Dot to Ears, just because I'm the so-called 'Dumbo' breed of fancy rat. Nuff said. Oxbow's good stuff. I'll eat it as a snack, but since I know my owner is cooking up some REAL food, it's never my first choice. I'm SO glad she doesn't take the writing on the box seriously that says something like 'Complete nutrition source for your rat -- you need not feed anything else.' Now THAT is a dangerous piece of advertising."

Flo said, "Our owner didn't rename me, 'Ears'. Ha! I was Flo, and I'm still Flo. And I like Oxbow. But like Ears said, it's kinda my backup food when I'm hungry and need to hit my stash of hoarded pellets. Some Mazuri, some Oxbow.

After much research, I decided Oxbow Regal Rat was the best food for the nutrition content my ratties need. Corn (which is not good for ratties) is not in the main ingredients! I find that this food brings out the best in my ratties: shiny fur, radiant personalities, and great health overall.

The best thing after opening the bag is that it's RESEALABLE!

Also, I heard that this may not be the most palatable food for rats, so I contacted the company. They said that most rats take a while to get used to it because they're transitioned from another food, but if ratties are started on it there's no issue. The recommendation is to feed Oxbow Regal Rat to ratties 4 months and older, so before that, just use another pellet to provide the growth nutrients. For my young rats, I supplement with Native Earth 18% (used to be Harlan Teklad) for the extra protein, then wean them off so the Regal Rat is all they get (with treats like fresh and prepared people foods, of course!).

As for taste, the company said they're working on a different flavor combination. I vote banana! Not all ratties enjoy the apple flavoring that this food has, but I've never seen a rat turn down banana! Or yogurt, for that matter. Anyway, if your ratties are having trouble liking the taste, just add a drizzle of yogurt or fruit and veggie puree and mix well so it soaks in. Then gradually reduce it until they're eating the pellets (or, keep doing it because they love, love, love it!). Just make sure the moist bits don't sit for longer than a day or two because the freshness wears off (in more ways than one).

I think this is a really healthy food for rats, it smells very fresh and is

attractively packaged, and the only thing I find wrong with it is that my

rats don't particularly like it. They will eat it quite well for a few days,

but after that they kind of politely ignore it until there's nothing else in

their bowls. Then they hide it behind their boxes or stack it in the corner

as if by emptying their bowls they can cause new and DIFFERENT food to

appear. Aside from that it really is the best rat food that I've found.

My rats will not eat this food, although the ingredient list is pretty good. Two thing to note: it includes fish meal and soybean meal (Soybean meal not contains phytoestrogens)and it's an "open" formula - meaning as long as there is still more A than B ingredient, the relative quantities can shift with market conditions.

This is really the best block food on the market. Harlan is good too, but its blocks are much larger and harder for little rattie hands.

My boys love the taste of this food. I feed them this and fresh veg with the occasional bit of grain mix as a treat.

My only gripe is that I wish it came in a 10lbs bag. 3lbs is a month to 6 weeks worth depending on the amount of fresh veg. 40lbs is over a year's worth and I'm afraid it would go bad.

I have three adult males :)

Used to use HHB but thats a wee bit pricey. Jelly likes this, and will munch on it all day. Good amount of food.

It's the healthiest rat food that you can buy other than giving them fresh foods. Even my largest rat who was lazy starting eating it, lost weight and became a lot more outgoing! They may not want to eat it at first but they'll get used to it eventually!
