Rice Pops

Post by Blackcandyapple on Tue Jul 26, 2016 1:55 pm

My mice and hamster absolutely love these things, but lately I've been wondering if they're safe to give to them, do you think it could cause respiratory problems?

These: http://m.petco.com/shop/en/petcostore/ware-small-rice-pops-small-animal-treats?

Ingredients
Rice, Corn, Sugar, Allura Red A11, Tartrazine F09, Brilliant Blue Fo2

Guaranteed Analysis
Rice (max.) 45%, Corn (max.) 35%, Sugar (max.) 15%, Artificial Colors (max.) 5%.

They're not the healthiest treat with the added sugars and colors, but I doubt they'd cause respiratory problems .... unless there was a severe allergy?

I can't see any reason why this would cause respiratory problems. They are safe for mice but it's basically like giving them a candy bar.

Mice have no need of pet store junk food treats. Healthy real foods such as walnuts, oats, scrambled eggs, pumpkin seeds, banana or a bit of toast will be greedily scarfed!

Are these like unhealthier rice crispies? You could try giving them rice crispies instead, my mice love them Smile

I think at first I was hoping it would help keep their teeth trim

Chewing on food and cardboard is plenty to wear down mouse teeth. You can also offer toys made from safe types of wood.
