Feeding Tips

  • Never feed any feedstuffs that are moldy, musty or suspect in any way.
  • Keep feed in a clean, dry environment and avoid excessive heat.

  • Pay close attention to the teeth of these animals, as they continue to grow longer. A chewing block or trimming of their teeth may be necessary to keep them from becoming too long. 

This product has been formulated specifically for rats and mice and is not intended for other species.  Do not feed to cattle or other ruminants.
