I recently just adopted a female dumbo rat who I adore so much. I plan on adopting another for her company but would love to get her diet straight.

I feed oxbow garden select young rat and mouse. I heard the adult is better but she is a baby! Should I switch to the adult? I also give a sprinkle of the Tropical Carnival mouse and rat mix to give her a tiny bit of seeds. As well as veggies only about two times a week.

So far I know people have good opinions on oxbow and giving a small amount of seeds so I think I’m good! Just wanted to hear some opinions! Thank you. :)

How old is she right now and do you know what food she was being fed where she previously lived? I currently give my rats oxbow adult rat food, they were never fans of the garden select and picked around it lol :)

I think you should switch to the adult and supplement it with extra protein like eggs- I've heard that the young rat food is nothing like the adult rat food. Oxbow's adult rat food is really good, but the young rat food is a different food and it's not that healthy.
