I apologize for you not getting the responses you were after! The forum does have bouts of(sometimes rather long) inactivity as we're all human and can get preoccupied with other things and not many people are looking to join lately. I always try to respond when I know the answer to something but I am at fault for forgetting now again with my ADHD. If you'd like I can work up a list of some foods I know are toxic/should be given in heavy moderation(I tend to avoid just to be safe) along with some I personally give my girls.feeling slightly stabbed in the back
Raw sweet potatoes are toxic to rats because it triggers excess production of body fluids which causes difficulty in breathing.
When this condition persists with stomach upsets from undigested potatoes, they will die in less than a day.Because rats can’t digest raw sweet potatoes. This later causes bloating in them and can even kill them.
But cooking the sweet potatoes at high temp neutralizes the properties that are toxic. This way the sweet potato will be safe for your little fella.rats can not eat sweet potatoes.
Sweet potato, especially in its uncooked form, is toxic to rats, and should not be fed to them.
Raw sweet potato contains compounds that form cyanide in the stomach. Spoiled Produce: Spoiled produce, or even produce and other foods not visibly spoiled but still old, contain deadly toxins and can have unseen bacteria and mold spores

Nobody informed me about the spinach or sweet potato??
I have got the impression this group is inactive and non responsive After having not 1 response from my thread I think ill delete my account and move elsewhere If i am met with zero responses or half arsed responses again. ugh. might aswell feed the rat cyanide ! not that any of you would educate me.

its a rat not a babyhi! its normal for nervous rats to be a bit cautious about new foods. they are prey animals, and want to make sure it wont hurt them. introduce them slowly rather than all at once as to not upset their stomach too horribly much (and because its a pain to scoop a litterbox after, lol). make sure the vegetables youre feeding are not too high in liquid, as that can also cause stomach issues. personally, my rats LOVE the shunamite diet. it costs me about 50 dollars to make ~4-5 months of food for my 3 boys. theres a facebook group on facebook about it, i highly recommend joining it! yogurt is also fine, just keep in mind they are lactose intolerant and keep it in small quantities. mine loove oui coconut yogurt, its one of their favorite treats (sans mealworms and chicken apple baby food)
