Optimice Standard Feeder with Scruffing Grid

Light Weight Self-Contained Feeder

Traditional cages combine the food and water dispensing areas using a wire bar hopper, which has a metal plate between the water bottle and the food. This system can actually be a little frustrating. The partition plate often unfastens from the wire bars, or moves out of place easily leading to food traveling underneath the plate and into the water bottle area, blocking the water bottle from going into its slot properly. Food can get wet and moldy, leading to food waste and, in worst case scenarios, rodent health issues. The wire bar lid is also heavy since it is made of stainless steel and options for changing feeder style is limited since the feeder and bottle holder are part of the same component.

This feeder is easily interchanged with other Optimice feeders and the food inside cannot be contaminated with water.

Recommendations: Use this feeder if there are smaller numbers of mice or smaller mice inside the cage. Our customers use the scruffing grid to easily grasp the mouse for health inspections and other procedures that require gentle restraint at the cage level.

Typical products purchased with this feeder are:

  • Any Optimice cage bottom
