Its ingredient list is: Whole Brown Rice, Oat Groats, Wheat Bran, Wheat, Soybean Meal, Menhaden Fish Meal, Soybean Hulls, Calcium Carbonate, Yeast Culture Dehydrated, Flax Seed Meal (Linseed), Inulin, Monocalcium Phosphate, Soy Oil, Methionine DL, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Wheat Germ Meal, Salt, Magnesium Oxide, Ferrous Sulfate, Choline Chloride, Natural Flavor, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Oxide, Manganese Oxide, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, L-ascorbyl-2-Monophosphate, Biotin, Niacin Supplement, Copper Sulfate, Sodium Selenite, Natural Mixed Tocopherols, Rosemary Extract, Cobalt Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Folic Acid, Riboflavin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Mononitrate, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (Vitamin K Activity), Calcium Iodate, Vitamin B12 Supplement.

Would this be appropriate for my mice? (I supplement three times each week with veggies and some fruit.) They come from a breeder who breeds mice only for pets and shows - they're not feeder mice.

I use this pellet as a base with my girls and they really enjoy it. I also recommend sprinkling in a bit of bird seed or a homemade mix for added variety.

Overall, if you know the breeder is a really good ethical one you can always ask them what they feed or suggest feeding Smile

Other: Hermes (robo hamster), Prism (betta), Max (dog--profile pic)
