Would it be okay to supplement a mouses diet every couple days with ground up multivitamin for humans? For awhile I have been feeding ground up oats, flax seed, and the multivitamin on top of their other food which is usually dog food, or a store bought mix. They seem to enjoy it and I've read a few articles regarding mice and some vitamins stating for a fact they increase the mouses quality of life.

Rather than that, which might mean overdosing them, mix a little bit of cereal for humans, like cornflakes, in with their food. Our breakfast cereals are fortified with vits, but mice can't eat so much of it they OD. :p

You're right I could do that. In fact, after I run out of this mix I've already got I will get some cereal for them. They really enjoy the mix and seem more active after eating it. Thanks!

PS Also, should have said before, just be careful of giving them cereal with too much sugar - try cornflakes and bran flakes, just a small amount added to their regular mix.

I already made plans to use sugarless cereal :)
