Many rats, including those that are pregnant or nursing, require higher levels of some vitamins and nutrients. This also includes young rats that are under 6 months of age. Furthermore, all mice have these higher level nutritional needs. Oxbow Essentials Mouse and Young Rat Food is specially designed for these pets. This food is created using the right combination of protein, fat, and energy. In addition, this food is designed as a uniform block. This prevents selective feeding, which is very common with seed based diets and mixes. This food is rich in essential vitamins and nutrients that young, pregnant, or lactating rats, or mice of all ages, need to thrive. This food is not intended for mature rats that are over the age of 6 months. Afterwards, older rats should be fed Oxbow Essentials Adult Rat Food.
