Is there a specific brand, type, flavor? What kind do you guys feed?


EDIT: Also, are all raspberry types safe?
Are all mushroom types safe? Do mushrooms need to be cooked?

Good question. I don't know.

I'm pretty sure that any mushrooms that are safe for humans are safe for mice. I think the standard little closed cup mushrooms are the best. Raw or cooked, but I give raw.

I didn't know there was more than one type of raspberry though.

Actually...there might not be...I have no idea why I even typed that up there. Embarrassing. I guess I assumed since the package says 'black raspberries' instead of just 'raspberries' that there were multiple varieties?

I occasionally give mine Buddy Biscuits (there's also a chicken flavor, if you prefer) or Healthy Favorites.

Like MouseLover said, mushrooms safe for us to eat are safe for them. Raspberries are also safe. There are different varieties but as far as I know, all are edible.

I have no idea. I've never heard of black raspberries... aren't those just blackberries? Laughing Anyway, as far as I'm aware, human-safe berries are safe for mice too.

Since my dog has allergies, I give her grain-free foods, including biscuits and treats. She loves Nutro brand Crunchy apple, carrot and mixed berry treats. The pieces are little triangles, about the size of a nickel, and easily break up into mouse-sized bits. Cordelia particularly likes the carrot ones Cookie ! I haven't tried the banana treats yet. One of my friends, not realizing Boo's grain-free restriction, gave me a bag of Trader Joe Turkey-Cranberry biscuits (each shaped like a tiny drumstick -- heehee). They are preservative-free and Cordelia is very fond of these as well.

Who knew there were so many types of raspberries?!! Wow! Black raspberries just look like blackberries though, how the heck can they tell the difference? lol

Milkbones are safe for mice. I believe they can have a small one a day, or about half a big one. They are great for pregnant/nursing mice because they are full of protein. My mice love the small variety in the classic flavour.

Are all varieties of milkbone safe? My dogs favor them, so they're an easy option.

I personally prefer the ingredients in the Healthy Favorites over the original. Much better, imo. No BHA. But I've seen many others on TFM say original is ok.

Guaranteed Analyses
Crude Protein 15.0 % min.
Crude Fat 5.0 % min.
Crude Fiber 3.5 % max.

VS

Healthy Favorites Chicken:

Getting healthy favorites would be good for my dog too. She's a bit overweight!
