This Pet Rat Won’t Eat His Broccoli and Does Not Tolerate Having It in His House

Of all the animals in the world, you would assume rats would eat anything but not Dexter the rat. When his human tries to feed him a piece of broccoli, his pet rat hates it and quickly picks it up and throws it out of his house. Even after numerous attempts, he doesn’t tolerate having broccoli near him and doesn’t want anything to do with it! Does he want it with a little melted cheese on top?

Dexter the Rat Hates Broccoli and Doesn't Want It in His House.

While it may seem amusing to watch a rat reject a healthy vegetable, it is important to note that rats do require a balanced diet to stay healthy. In the wild, rats would consume a varied diet consisting of grains, fruits, vegetables, and protein sources. In captivity, pet rats should be provided with a diet that mimics their natural diet as closely as possible. This can include commercial rat food, fresh fruits and vegetables, and occasional protein sources such as cooked chicken or eggs.

Can rats eat broccoli?

Broccoli is actually a nutritious vegetable that is safe for rats to eat in moderation. It is a good source of vitamins C and K, as well as fiber and antioxidants. However, it is important to introduce new foods to rats gradually and in small amounts to avoid digestive upset.

If a rat is particularly resistant to eating certain foods, it may be helpful to try offering it in different ways. For example, broccoli can be cooked or steamed to make it more appealing, or it can be mixed with other vegetables or fruits to create a balanced meal.
