"Rats need extremely LOW levels of protein in their diets and do best on a high quality lab block containing only 14 to 18 percent protein, along with fresh fruits and veg, whole grains, and OCCASIONAL protein-based treats like tuna or chicken bones to gnaw on. High protein diets have been linked to higher rates of lymphoma, mycoplasmosis, bumblefoot, kidney failure, and pituitary tumors, among other health problems. Rats shouldn't eat the same higher-protein lab block that gerbils and hamsters prefer. For long life and good health, only baby rats and nursing mothers should eat higher protein diets."
