Best lab block buy?

Post by pokemonsz on Sat 10 Feb 2018, 11:48 pm

I am thinking of adding a lab block to my boy's diet because I don't think their current mix is completely sufficient (Grreat choice, has corn and some little pellets they avoid like plague). What are the best value lab blocks out there so I can ensure they're getting the nutrients they need but can still scavenge about their current mix?

I use Supreme Science Selective Mouse to round out my seed mix. It’s not easy to find in the U.S. so I ship it in through viovet. But their rat block is often sold on amazon and can work too. Most U.S. lab blocks that I’ve seen are absolute junk. Mostly corn.

Check out this thread for suggestions on seed mixes. https://www.petmousefanciers.com/t15-mouse-diet Also to prevent selective feeding, only refill the dish once they’ve eaten most of it.

I second Supreme Selective Rat- I'd rather get the mouse formula but it's pretty much impossible to get here other than through things like viovet, so I stick to rat.

Oxbow Regal Rat could also work as a supplement, I think, but unlike for rats it's not nutritionally sufficient for mice alone

Thanks @Callalily and @chiroptera ! Love
I've taken the plunge and ordered a couple bags from Viovet- I figure when supplementing their current mix it'll last a while. How many do each of your mice go through per day so I can guess how many I should aim for?

I put around 4 in every time I refill their dish, which was working out to every other day before. Now that it’s just the two girls I’m not sure yet how it’s working out.
