Optirat Plus Small J-feeder

Wish you had the right kind of feeder for special diets?

Research rodents are often fed specialized diets. These diets may have medications or other test compounds mixed into the food and come in a number of different forms, like powdered, mash, or as very small pellets, all of which are incompatible with routine slotted feeders. Specialized diets require special feeders; however they can be difficult to find and therefore open bowls that sit on the cage floor are routinely used. Open feeding bowls are not ideal though since they are easily tipped and food is spilled and wasted. Rodents can also sleep or play in the bowl which soils and cakes the food with urine and feces.
This J-feeder hangs in place of the regular feeder so it cannot be tipped or knocked over. Like our regular feeders, this J-feeder sits above the cage floor, but is low enough for easy access by young or less ambulatory animals. Because the J-feeder remains stably in place, animals have 24/7 access to an ample amount of clean food. Our design ensures that the food inside is free of contamination and the wide open top enables easy refill of food.

Recommendations: Typically  the large J feeder is chosen for a non-divided cage, but if using a divider, the smaller area that this feeder takes up means more cage floor space for the animals inside.
