    This is likewise the only food I buy for my rats. Not only is it healthy but they also love it. It’s awesome to be able to buy it in a bigger quantity and also at a reasonable price!

    As others have said, this is the only food I’ll purchase for my rats. Not only is it toted as the best, every rat I’ve owned has absolutely loved it! And my vet was thrilled to hear this is what they eat, as it’s what she recommends to all rat owners as well. Always glad to purchase it from this site as opposed to, uh, certain large companies that have a monopoly on online ordering, as the price on Canadian Pet Connection is never inflated and I’ve never had a bad batch. Love that!

    This is the only food I have ever bought for my rats. I did a lot of research at first and found that this one was always rated highly and had less junk in it. When I’ve adopted rats and transitioned them onto this food, they do not get sick and prefer it to anything else. I do a free-feed with fruits and veggies every other day and it works well. They love it!
