Tame rats are not only active at night, but also during the day and at dusk. They are intelligent and loyal and offer excellent company for children and adults. This also applies to gerbils (or desert rats), which are actually more related to hamsters than to rats.

A healthy rat has a shiny coat and bright eyes and is friendly and playful. It’s not for nothing that for many people the rat is a dear, loyal friend! Rats belong to the small rodents and, as to food, have the same basic needs as gerbils and hamsters. Animals which are being bred or taken to shows often have to be extra vital and well developed. Garvo feed is perfectly tuned to the needs of rats and thus contributes to their fertility, growth and health.

feeding advice

  • give daily fresh feed, but no more than they can eat
  • supplement of greens is optional, but not necessary
  • it’s alright to give regular little bits of animal products, such as chunks of cheese
  • give fresh water daily
