I looked at the rat food recipe. Sounds pretty good. I think I'll give it a try. I don't live near a store that sells that type of dog food though. Is there another I can use?So far the only thing I've seen her eat was a little banana, peanut butter, and some sunflower seeds that were in some hamster mix I gave her because I was afraid she'd starve cause she won't eat the rodent blocks. I didn't want to give it to her, but thats what she was used to eating, so I thought I could give her that along with the rodent blocks and wean her off of it. The sneezing has actually gotten better. I plan on getting another female rat as soon as I am sure she is healthy. Do you think it would be good to get one with fur? Maybe it would keep her warm.
