When people think of rats, most of them say “ew” or “gross”. Contrary to myths, domesticated rats do not carry diseases infectious to humans.
I have heard one too many times people dismissing rats as some kind of disgusting rodent that belongs in a sewer.
As someone who works at a pet store, my goal is to educate our clients on the proper care for animals that so many people dismiss.
Rats are similiar to humans in a lot of ways, which means they can eat a lot of different human foods. They don’t just eat packaged rat food you buy at your local pet store or order online.
These intelligent critters should have fresh foods off of the list below everyday. They can even have left overs off your dinner plate!
I have also heard of a few rat moms feeding their rat a strict raw diet. Which is perfectly healthy for them, just like it is for dogs and cats.
