    Hello, I am new to this forum. I have run into a situation. I give my boys Oxbow brand adult rat food and I noticed that I was getting low so I went to the shop to go buy more but they are out. When asked, the worker said that they won't be getting any for about a week and a half from today (January 11th, 2019) and I only have about a days worth left. I am not able to get anymore until Wednesday I think and it is currently Friday. I was wondering if there is anything else that I can feed them in the mean time. I do have left over baby rat food but they don't like it since I switched to adult food and I don't want to have to go backwards and go back to feeding them food that isn't fit for them. I understand that too much vegetables with most likely give them problems like diarrhea so I don't want to do that for the time being. All help and responses are appreciated.
