Rat products we use and recommend
Main food brands:
We like to use Science Selective rat food combined with a RatRations.com mix. We also quite like these other 2 types to mix with the selective one for variety
We tend to use mostly paper based bedding for rats but occasionally use aspen (Aubiose) or Raviera.
Rats have very sensitive respiratory systems so shouldn't be kept on woodshavings.
Rats love climbing so need the height of their cage to be filled with hammocks, tunnels, bridges and ropes.
They also like to have houses and tunnels on the ground level.
Websites/stockists we recommend:
Zooplus - Usually cheapest for toys, also has the JR farms food
Vet UK - Usually cheapest for treats/forage
VioVet - Usually more expensive than VetUK but stocks items they don't have (eg more of the Rosewood range)
RatRations - Great food mixes, natural treats (berries, nuts etc), stocks Finacard too
Finacard - Great cardboard bedding, we tend to buy it in bales for best value
Fuzzbutt Cage Comforts - Fab quality hammocks
Rat Warehouse - Supplements, bonding pouches, cage accessories and more
We aren't affiliated with any of the above brands or websites, we just recommend them based on our own experience
