rat gnawing material You can buy responsible rodent material for your Rats easily and quickly at DRD Rodent Shop ®

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

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

Some Rats gnaw gnawing wood very actively and others don't at all. It is on the one hand a matter of taste, but on the other hand a matter of need. If a Rat has no need to gnaw because the teeth stay at a good length through food, hay or other nibbles, he will gnaw less on gnawing wood. It is good to always offer natural gnawing wood so that the animals can always gnaw if they have a need to gnaw.

Gnaw harvest for rats

Especially the herb harvest 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, this will also have a soothing and calming effect on the animals in addition to nibbling pleasure. The leaves are wonderful to drag around. Give your rats a different taste every time and keep surprising the animals!

Gnawing material against problem behavior

As soon as the rats attack the hammock, you know it's time for gnawing material! Many problem behaviors are caused by a lack of gnawing material and boredom. Therefore, alternate the range of gnawing material so that there is no rut. The same piece of wood every day gets boring, but one day a piece of wood from the apple and the next day a nibbler brings a bit more challenge.

If the animals gnaw in 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 in that place, they get distracted by the toy and will start working with it.

Do not give gnawing material in snack form too often

Rodent material that is enriched with tasty is very tasty and attractive to the animals. However, do not give this too often. Give mainly natural unenriched rodent material and alternate this 1x a week or two weeks with rodent material that has been enriched with something tasty. This keeps it fun and healthy for the animals!

Dental check in rats

It is important for all rodents and rabbits to check the teeth of the animals regularly. Because the teeth always grow, 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, it hurts and the animals can no longer eat properly. They will enthusiastically take food but then not eat it. It can also happen that animals drool, keep their mouths open or eat foreign materials that are softer than their own food, for example. Always be alert to such signals. Prevention is always better than cure!

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 a limestone.

Healthy rodents

Fortunately, there are many healthy rodents and materials available for rats today, which are safe and health-promoting. In addition to natural wood, many healthy rodents are made from vegetable products without the addition of sugar.
