There's only one true study done on rats for optimum health and that's the China Study by Dr. Campbell. It's been determined that rats require very little protein and low fat as well.
Dr Campbell did a huge study called the China Study and of course, he used rats.
He found the optimum protein and fat amounts for rats.
As it turns out meat and dairy and eggs are not good...well for anyone. The high cholesterol and saturated fats is harmful to us, unless you are an obligate carnivore.
Rats are opportunistic scavengers. A wild rat's average life span is 9 months! We certainly don't want that for our domesticated pets.
I would not give anything with high protein or fat and that includes all meat, dairy and eggs.
In the China Study, it is proven that rats require 10% protein from excellent sources.
