Caring for rats, naturally

The way that you care for and interact with your rat should reflect their natural behaviour as a prey species. How does this influence their behaviour of rats in the home?

  • Scavengers and hoarders – both of food and objects to chew
  • Love to burrow underground
  • Live in sociable groups
  • May mask signs of illness – making it difficult to tell when they are ill
  • Nocturnal and like to play at night

Use this understanding to find ways to keep them happy and healthy…


Our Supreme Veterinary Range

From time to time, your vet may make a specific dietary recommendation to help support your rat if they are ill or lethargic. That can also include times when your rat is recovering from surgery or illness. Our Recovery Plus diet is a popular option recommended by many veterinary professionals.


Why our rat foods are second to none

Rat diets don’t just deliver nutrition but taste and enjoyment too. Rats are active chewers and need to do so to keep their constantly growing teeth trimmed.

  • Wholegrain goodness – for active chewing
  • No added sugar – tasty because of the flavour of high-quality natural ingredients
  • Nutritionally balanced with all the vitamins and minerals they need
