rat gnawing materialYou can buy responsible rodent material for your rats quickly and easily at DRD Knaagdierwinkel ®

Rats have a natural need to gnaw. This is because Rats are rodents and have growing incisors. It is therefore necessary for Rats to be able to gnaw on something to wear the teeth. If rats have too few possibilities to wear the teeth, the teeth can become too long or grow crooked with all the consequences.

Gnawing wood is used by rodents to wear down their teeth. Because the teeth of rodents are always growing, they must regularly have something to gnaw so that they do not become too long and grow crooked.

Some Rats are very active gnawing wood and others not at all. On the one hand it is a matter of taste, but on the other hand it is a matter of need. If a Rat has no need to gnaw because the teeth are kept on length by the food, hay or other nibbles, he will chew less wood. It is good to always offer natural gnawing wood so that the animals can always gnaw when they have a need to gnaw.

Gnaw harvest for rats

Especially the herb harvesting branches are very nice as gnawing material. The animals can wear their teeth on the branches and also get healthy nutrients. Take the chamomile harvest for example, in addition to nibbling pleasure, it will also have a calming and calming effect on the animals. The leaves are wonderful to drag around. Give your rats a different flavor every time and keep surprising the animals!

Gnawing material against problematic behavior

As soon as the rats attack the hammock, you know it is time for gnawing material! A lot of problem behavior is caused by a lack of gnawing material and boredom. Therefore, alternate the range of gnawing material so that there is no rut. Every day the same piece of wood gets boring, but one day a piece of wood from the apple and the next day a nibble roll is a bit more challenging.

If the animals gnaw at a certain place in the enclosure, hang a piece of gnawing material in the form of a toy. As soon as the animals want to gnaw on that spot, they get distracted by the toy and will start working on it.

Do not give gnawing material in snack form too often

Gnawing material that is enriched with tasty, is very tasty and attractive to the animals. However, don't give this too often. Mainly give natural unenriched gnawing material and alternate this once a week or two weeks with gnawing material that is enriched with a treat. This way it remains fun and healthy for the animals!

Dental check-up in rats

For all rodents and rabbits it is important to check the teeth of the animals regularly. Because the teeth are always growing, it is vital that they wear down regularly and straight. The image below shows what the teeth of rodents look like.

The most common indication of problems is weight loss in the animals. As soon as problems arise with the teeth, this hurts and the animals can no longer eat properly. They will enthusiastically handle food but then not eat it. It can also prevent animals from drooling, keeping their mouths open or eating foreign materials that are softer than their own food, for example. Always be alert for such signals. Prevention is always better than remedy!

No gnawing stones or limestones

We do not sell these because of the possible negative effect on health. The animals get all the necessary minerals through a balanced diet. It is therefore not necessary to supplement this with limestone.

Healthy gnawing stones

Fortunately, there are now many healthy gnawing stones and materials available for rats that are safe and health-promoting. Besides natural wood, many healthy gnawing stones are made from vegetable products without the addition of sugar.
