Feeding Your Rats
Rats are omnivorous requiring both plant and protein food sources in their diets, and specially formulated diets help to meet those nutritional requirements. Rats need feeding twice a day, (in the morning and in the evening). Give only what can be eaten and check for stale food that they may have stashed away.
Experts in Small Pets
A good quality, heavy, earthenware bowl keeps food dry and clean and prevents Rats from tipping the food. Bowls must be cleaned after every use.

Changing your rats diet
If you’re changing your Rat’s diet, it’s vital that you introduce the new food gradually. Mix one quarter of the new food with three quarters of the old food on the first day and then gradually increase the new food and decrease the old food over a 10-day period. You can also feed treats such as fruit and vegetables including carrots and sultanas and occasionally some cooked eggs, meat and fish.
Recommended by vets, a nutritionally complete and balanced diet that perfectly suits rats to help keep them healthy and well.
It includes fruits such as apple and blackcurrant for their antioxidant properties and high vitamin content to promote optimum health. It is also high in polyunsaturated fatty acids and low in both saturated fatty acids and cholesterol to assist cardiovascular and circulatory health. Selective is specially formulated to help keep you pet’s skin and coat in great condition.
But it is what we don’t put in to Selective that is important too…
Have you checked the label on your rats’ food lately? Take a look, because some rat foods contain molasses or syrup or other sugary ingredients. This extra sugar in a rat’s diet can lead to overeating and obesity. It can also lead to dental problems too.
Vegetables and foods safe for small pets...
A guide to the vegetables and other foods that are safe to feed to your rabbits and other small pets.
Small pets will enjoy a small portion of fresh food and vegetables alongside their regular daily diet. Herbivores such as rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and degus will benefit from a small quantity of fresh fibrous leafy green vegetables every day. Here you can find out which fresh vegetables and other foods that are safe to feed to your rabbits and other small pets and what you should avoid.
- No small pets should be offered avocado, chocolate or apple seeds
- It is important as a pet owner that you should always avoid feeding small pets any formulated diets that are designed for a different species.
- All pets must have access to clean fresh water at all times.
- Never feed food stuffs that appear dusty, mouldy or otherwise dirty. In most cases human grade foods are required.
Here is a list of foods that are safe and unsafe to feed to your rats...
This list is not exhausted and is intended as a guide, however if you have any further questions, you can reach us on our facebook page, or get in touch via our contact us page on www.supremepetfoods.com.
- Foods to always feed form the basis of what should be offered, along with your pet’s normal, formulated pet food
- Foods to feed occasionally are treats that can form a valid part of the diet, but for various reasons this shouldn’t be every day. For example, the sugar content could be too high, or other things such as high levels of oxalates that can be found in spinach
- ALWAYS – A portion of rat food, leafy green vegetables, cooked grains, cooked legumes (never raw), fruits (no apple seeds or avocado) small amounts of cooked meats, low fat cottage cheese and cooked eggs.
- SOMETIMES – Dried corn, beetroot, celery, aubergine, lettuce, cucumber, spinach, radishes, live insects.
- TREATS – Small amounts of no sugar added dried fruits, small amounts of toast, small amounts of yogurt (soya rather than dairy), low sugar baby food
- NEVER – Citrus skin, uncooked dry beans and peanuts, mango, chocolate, poppy seeds, apple seeds, avocado, raw sweet potato.

Update: I contacted Supreme Petfoods, to let them know about the bag in case it was a manufacturing fault they were unaware of. Turns out the bags are supposed to be like that to enable easier transport and stop bags bursting when laid on top of each other. Apparently as the rat food is low/non existent in fat, these air holes don't cause the food to oxidise/go rancid, nor have any other detrimental effect on it. Personally I'd prefer not to buy food with air holes in it, unless it's either super-fresh such as bread, or can be washed before I eat it, for example, as I wouldn't be sure what contaminants where in the air that can get inside the bags, so I would have returned this food anyway once I'd seen the air holes in it. I shall check any pet foods I buy in plastic sealed bags carefully from now on to ensure I don't get any with these perforations in them. I did note, also, that as the bag had been squashed flat at some point in transit, the food nuggets had made dints in the plastic bag all over and one of these had a small hole in it.
I'll be getting the bigger bag next time, much better value. This is definitely THE kibble of choice in this house!
Great rat food, they love these nuggets and don't leave any behind.
