The rats here are fed a diet based closely on Alison Campbells "Shunamite diet".
The basic mix is Alpha Herbal with various other bits added, such as unsugared cereal, dried pasta, Burns dog kibble
and some rat nuggets. Other things are added in small quantities, they could be, dried cranberries/blueberries, pumpkin seeds,
the odd few banana chips, carob and sometimes a bag of xtra vital rat food. I make the mix a bit different each time
to stop boredom, after all, you would soon become fed up eating muesli everyday!
Every evening supper is provided. Once a week on sundays they have salmon and scrambled eggs. Most nights it is a combination
of fruits and veg and of course the obligatory curly kale. Rats also enjoy cooked rice, pasta, tuna in oil, butter beans,chick
peas and sweetcorn just to name a few.
Rats like a variety of food, and fresh fruit and veg is better than feeding sweet treats like choccy buttons!
