Exotic Nutrition Rodent Blocks are formulated to provide the nutrients required for growth and maintenance for most rodents including rats, mice, hamsters, and guinea pigs. Also, ideal for supplying optimum nutrition to pet squirrels and degus. Nutritionally complete and balanced food.

Healthy treats have several benefits for both pets and pet owners. Treats can lend variety to an otherwise monotonous diet, provide good exercise for teeth and jaws, and add behavioral enrichment for animals that spend their lives in a small, limited environment. Most importantly, treats form a connection between pets and pet owners, assisting in bonding and training.

Your pet Squirrel may snub these Rodent blocks initially if there are other food sources available, but this is the food many squirrel rehabs use due to the high nutritional values. The trick is to offer Exotic Nutrition rodent blocks first, and withhold the nuts and treats for later. If your Squirrel is still reluctant to eat the rodent blocks you can try enticing them using the following formula:

1/4 Cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 tablespoon walnut oil (or other nut based oil)
1 cup Exotic Nutrition Rodent Block
1/4 teaspoon Exotic Nutrition's Squirrel-Cal (calcium supplement)

Blend peanut butter & oil, microwave (approximately 45 seconds). Stir in Squirrel-Cal until thoroughly mixed. Pour over the rodent block and mix until blocks are coated. Let sit for at least an hour so that blocks absorb the peanut flavor. On parchment paper or a lightly grease baking sheet, lay out in a single layer and bake 225 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour. Let block cool completely before placing in a covered dish or bag. Store up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Storage: Store cool and dry.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with these as far as my rodents go. They readily take and eat them and I bought them primarily thinking they'd be good for their teeth. Totally good on that front. However, my CAT is the biggest fan and I have no idea why. She never gets into food. Not her own food, not people food, nothing... But she is OBSESSED with trying to rip into the bag of these. I had to lock them in a box under my cage and she got into that too. Somehow. Miraculously. You'd think there was catnip in them or something. She has dietary restrictions due to IBS, so I can't have her swallowing these whole. In case they're just as attractive to other cats, I'd suggest keeping them well out of reach of any felines. -Emily N.

My flying squirrels like this treat they are spoiled with a variety of other things so this is not their fave but they do like it. Now if I had grays to rescue right now I could leave a review for them.. but I don’t. I would think they would like them. I think my flyers are just spoiled to the core lol. -Denise G.
