A selection of products that are particularly useful for older rats.

Rat and Mouse Ground Diet
Product image

Click picture for more info



A complete diet formulated specially for rats and mice, using human food grade soya, providing a consistent source of protein. Relatively low protein levels promote longer lifespan by reducing obesity and other health problems associated with ageing. Formulated for optimum health. Suitable for all rats including those with diabetes and kidney disease.

This finely ground presentation of the diet is ideal for old and sick and post-op rats who have trouble eating solid food and thrive on a soft diet. It will provide them with the nutrients they require without causing weight gain. We recommend that fresh food is also made available when possible. This diet does not contain meat, so you might want to add some fish oil or small amounts of chicken and fish as part of a varied diet. Just mix with hot water and let cool to serve.

This food is great for rats with leg paralysis as they can eat without the struggle of sitting up and holding food. Also beneficial for elderly rats who eat dry food slowly, this is easier to eat so oldies can get their nutrients without struggling or using up their energy as they consume it. Sold in a trial 250g size, as well as 500g and 1kg bags.

Rat Warehouse
Product image

New Product
*Brand new!* Weight-Up Baby! "Morelicks" is a soothing porridge, made with 100% pure malt, chamomile and lavender. It is as usual, a high-calorie instant mush created at the Ratwarehouse to help some of our own skinny old rats keep some weight on. Full of energy and flavour, most rats find it hard to resist. When rats get fussy and start refusing certain foods, it is a great treat to have at hand. As it is so palatable and easy to eat and digest, it makes it a fantastic aid to help recovery in post-op rats who may have little appetite. Just add a little boiling water to some powder for best results. The product thickens as it cools down so you may adjust consistency with a little more water and whisk well. As this product is hand-blended, the consistency and flavour may vary from batch to batch. 100g bag - Multiples might be sent in one larger bag unless you request separate 100g bags.
