My poor black rat Armani has had a rough time. He came in with a burn/wound of some kind on his belly and has been to the vet a few times for that and a blood test/check up. The vet said he was underweight at the time so I’ve been feeding him on 1 small rat/week to bulk him up a little but I’ve got a feeling he’s put on a little too much weight. I’m not sure of his exact weight but he’s about 5’ feet long and has a fantastic appetite, eats like a garbage disposal. Can anyone recommend a better feeding schedule? I was thinking of either spacing the rats out to 1x every two weeks or switching to an adult mouse every two weeks.
Apologies for the bad photos, he was feeling pretty wiggly and I was trying to wrangle him with one hand.
