Need Help Getting Food :C

So, if you read my post the vet called me back and told me stop Mazuri Rat food and go straight to Oxbow Regal Rat or Harlen.
Wow, my my vet knew of them.
Bottom line is that Mazuri has way too much protein in it.

Heres the issue...I cant buy the food my pets need!!!!!

There are no stores that sell it. My vet doesn't sell it. Even if they did it would be insanely priced. I love my vet but he runs a business too. Im not going to buy Kaytee or what not. It sucks butt.

All the online stores I know take Paypal and credit cards.
No credit card. But I have PayPal but theres a catch, in order to use Paypal to purchase that account has to have a credit card on it.

So what do i do now? Do you know any online stores that carry Regal Rat and Harlen?

Anybody want to do a Harlen/Regal run?
Where many people throw in money for the amount of pounds they need and the total pays for a BIG bag. All the money is collected upfront by one person who has a credit card. The bag is shipped to that person then is separated into pounds of what each person ordered/payed.

I have Paypal like I said, it would be the easiest way to do it.

well i was right
i have been saying he was being given to much protien from the start
if you cant buy the rat food you need you need to find a way to make your own. if you dont have a credit card why dont you give your parents or a rl friend the money needed to buy the correct food and then they will buy it using their credit card

The Mazuri sold in expensive little 2 lb bags is 23% protein, 6.5% fat...too high but still better than the alternatives of Kaytee, Reggie Rat, and other more generic brands like Sunseed, etc.

If you can get a hold of Living World Extrusion for Hamsters it is actually a decent block for rats.

OR you can ask someone to order you Harlan on their credit card and you pay them cash. I have done that in the past or even helped out friends that way...its not a biggie.

To the world you are only one person, to your rat you are the World
