I feed my rats saltines?
Ok. I fed my rats a piece of saltine crackers and i was wandering if that be ok for them. I know that when they lived in the wild they were competent to eat anything so R SALTINES OK FOR RATS TO EAT?
ps. they r acting normal
No rats surrounded by the wild cannot eat just anything. If they could munch through anything we'd have rats up to our knees because eating something that kills them is one of the things that help keep their population down.
It's ok to give:
fruit: apples, cherries, grapes, banana, strawberries, other berries, melons, plums.
vegetables: broccoli, potatoes, peas, carrot, cooked sweet potato, kale, parsley, bok choy, squash.
cooked liver, other very lean meats (cooked)
unbroken wheat pasta and bread
cooked beans (including soya)
yogurt (especially with live cultures)
unsweetened breakfast cereals
small dog biscuits
some leftovers from your meal are okay in moderation, but avoid fatty or sugary scraps and items off the chronicle below.
special treats (given only occasionally): whole nuts in the shell (almonds, brazin nuts, walnuts), sunflower seed (high in fat), carob chips
chocolate (although I do give the odd single chocolate chip every in a minute and then and they love it)
raw sweet potato
cabbage, brussel sprouts
sweet sugary treats, any other "unwanted items food"
One of our rat lovers was told by a science teacher that baby spinach should solitary be given in moderation because it contains a high concentration of silicon which can cause intestinal irritation. We haven't be able to verify this information yet but thought we'd post it just contained by case it's true. If you happen to come across any information online that verifies this, please agree to us know."
I know that is way more hten you asked for but it might come in handy some time.
They are going to be simply fine as long as that is not the only food you give them because rats call for nutrition and they do not need a high blood pressure(the salt). You can buy nutritiously fortified rat food at almost any pet store.
I love rats!!
I nurture my rat them every now and then, i try to give her the ones next to no salt on them, buts she likes them both the same.
are they comatose now? if they arent dead i bet its safe and sound to assume its not a deadly food for them.
