Product Information

Regal Rat is a specialty feed that provides 100% of the daily required nutrients for adult pet rats. This specialty feed is a low-fat diet designed to increase the longevity and well-being of adult pet rats. Your rat will love it!

Regal Rat has been formulated with guidance by a combined team of professionals with experience in laboratory animal science, zoo and wildlife nutrition. Members include a leading nutritionist with 25 years of expertise in laboratory animal science, formerly with the National Institutes of Health and a member of National Research Council committees. The result is a nutritionally balanced feed, designed to increase the longevity and well-being of the pet rat.

Research has shown that animals in the adult stage of life require lower levels of certain nutrients. Foods high in fat reduce the rat's ability to control energy consumption, resulting in obesity. Regal Rat is a low fat diet designed to meet the nutritional needs of adult rats without life threatening obesity.

Regal Rat is a complete kibble that prevents selective feeding behaviors that are commonly associated with seed-based diets.

Regal Rat is a specialty feed, with a taste they will love, designed exclusively for your adult rat's nutritional needs.

This product is nutritionally balanced with the high quality ingredients you have come to expect from Oxbow Pet Products.

In response to your recent website information about the price/value of your products.... I wouldn't think of feeding my rats anything BUT Oxbox Regal Rat. My vet at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, MA told me about your product four years ago and I have fed all thirteen of them (not all at once!) your adult rat product ever since then. They may be small and some may think maybe they're not worth spending money on, but I know they have beautiful coats, bright eyes, and lots of energy. I believe your food help them live longer, too. - Janet from Massachusetts

      Comments about Oxbow Regal Rat Food:

      I have 6 female rats : Isabis, Kohana, Blossom, Olive, Penny, & Peaches.

      And three males: Mr.Beans , Mr.Waffles, & Cricket.

      I have just went through my first 40lb bag surprisingly very fast. I have Mr. Waffles and Cricket in a top unit Critter Nation and they go through a bowl of this almost every day, as well as my females. They eat this stuff like they are bottomless pits. I can tell that they have all become healthy weights for their sizes, this diet is perfect and my females haven't showed any signs of the soy in the diet affecting them i.e tumors.

      Not good for rats under the age of 4 months guys, remember that!! This is an ADULT RAT DIET.

        Comments about Oxbow Regal Rat Food:

        I feed this to all my ratties and they love it - have never turned their whiskers up at it! Lab blocks just don't go over well - while they will eat them, it's only as a last resort when the other food is gone and the pieces seem to be larger than my girls prefer. Especially for younger rats, these little kibbles are just the right size for tiny hands to hold while nibbling.

        I love buying in bulk - saves just as much on pet food as it does on human food! I split the bag up into gallon sized ziploc bags and stick them in the freezer like others have commented - keeps it fresh and easier to manage in smaller packages.

          Comments about Oxbow Regal Rat Food:

          My 6 rats eat this every day. We used to use the standard "Rat Block" food that is sold at the pet stores. They like this MUCH better, and their fur is softer, smoother, and they are healthier. There is no corn in this food, and it is well balanced. I bought the 40 lb bag and repacked the big bag into smaller containers and put them in the deep freezer. At thius value, this food is the same price as the Rat Block at the pet store, for a much more superior product.
