Mice and rats of all life stages can benefit from Oxbow Essentials Mouse/Young Rat Block. This uniform block not only contains essential nutrients but also prevents selective feeding behaviors associated with other foods. Make certain your mice or rat is getting the nutrients it needs in each meal.
Features: Growing, energetic, pregnant or nursing rats require higher levels of certain nutrients than adult rats. Mice of all life stages have these higher level needs as well. That's why this nutritionally complete and balanced food contains optimal protein, fat and energy sources to support those needs. Essentials Mouse & Young Rat is a uniform block that prevents selective feeding behaviors commonly associated with mixes and seed-based diets and is rich in vital nutrients to help these pets thrive.
