• Rat Mix No9

No9 is a Straights Based diet specifically formulated for pregnant and nursing does and  has a higher protein level to reflect the demands needed during this time.  

No9 is perfect for growing kittens until they are around 10 - 12 weeks.  By this time they have finished their major growth spurt and can happily be given an adult mix.

Made using our Base Mix No4, No 9 includes all the component parts of a homemade mixture based on the Shunamite style diet.

A supplement should be offered two or three times a week as most homemade mixtures are deficient in Calcium, Copper and Vitamin D.

Our DailyRat3 provides these in an easy to use powder form.  We have found that mixing it into yoghurt or a wet meal such as mackerel, sardines or scrambled egg is the easiest way to ensure it is taken.

A water based option is to use Dr.S Daily Essentials 1 with Dr.S Calcivet in the same water bottle.
