dr squiggles daily essentials and dailyrat 3 (give both?)

Post by charlie4591 » Thu Aug 04, 2011 8:48 am

i currently give dr squiggles a few times a week, i was thinking about giving dailyrat 3 instead of calvicet as calcium. is it ok to gove dailyrat 3 on wet food a few times a week if i have squiggles in the water? i was worried about overdosing them since dailyrat and squiggles both have copper. Thanks ;)

Yes it's fine to give both (they have an overlap on copper and vitamin d, both of which should be a bit of overdosing on), however depending on how old your rats are they may be a bit short of calcium still as they'll only be getting there daily allowance on 3 days out of a week. You could up the amount you give possibly, or maybe look at some other options like offering bones regularly.
