I tried looking it up but I haven't found anything. I guess not many people give them to their pets Hopefully Vanilla Rat or someone will know the answer!.

I have never ever tried giving my rats these,only cause I don't buy them.I was once given a big bag of them,but never even thought about it! That was a long time ago.

If you don't find any info about it on the net,it is probably okay in small amounts.But remember nuts can be fatty,so I would only give them some in moderation.

I have given my rats each a little piece of a pistachio nut, but never a whole one. I don't think the shell would be an issue, but the nut itself is quite large, and as Lisa said, it's not really good for them to eat nuts very much. I also rinsed all the salt off before I gave it to them, because mine were salted.

I don't think the nut would be dangerous, but probably not all that good for them to eat.

I would say it's fine, just so long as they don't have salt on them..I got two new ratties yesterday! They are called ray and pepper!

I have one mouse who likes them as a treat (not the whole one though, just a piece) every once in a while. In fact, she loves the taste. They are, as everyone else has noted, not doing much for the nutrition of our pets. I did keep checking to see if they made her sick and found no evidence of that. I think it's okay in small doses.
