    This website seems like a phenomenal source for advice but I was wondering if anyone knew of other forums to check out? I know there's a Reddit community.

    I currently am feeding my rats Oxbow for adult rats. Back in the early 2000s when I first started caring for rats I was making my own rat mix that pretty much covered all nutritional needs with out any added junk. That was well over 10 years ago and I can only remember a very little about what...

I want to convince my parents to get me 3 more rats for Christmas but I’m not sure how. I’m making a google slide to try and persuade them, im going to show them soon. But are there any...

    Hi everyone, I’m a long time lurker first time poster. My lady, Bunny, has recently been getting scabs on her hands but I’m unsure why. It looks like the top layer of skin has been rubbed away - I don’t see any cuts when I clean her wound and her cage mate doesn’t have any wounds. She has also...

    Hi! Do you guys have any advice on helping an abscess open up/ pop on my rat? The vet prescribed pain medicine and antibiotics. Is there any way to help open it up and drain? Thanks! Have a great day! 🐀

    I havent had these rats for long and over the course of 10 months, I've realized I'm not fit to own rats. So I'm asking the experts on here what a good adoption fee and price for all their stuff would be (preferably CAD since I hate exchange rates). The rat boys in question are about 10 months 5...

    Hiya everyone! I’m new to the forum but enjoyed reading many things on it before making an account. Recently I just got two female dumbos (Kiwi & Dumpling) from a breeder nearby and they made themselves pretty comfortable in their cage! I’ve never owned rats before so this is my first time...

    Hello! I have got a fancy rat who I believe is around 10-12 months old at this point. I have another male rat as well but I haven't had any problems after his neuter. Anyway, Remi got neutered around 6-7 months old back in June. I had them neutered because Remi had bAd buck grease, marked like...

    Forgive me for my urgency but it's not unusual for me to jump the gun with my anxiety. As I went to put my rats into their cage for bed, I realized Smidge was acting slightly lethargic. I didn't question it at first as he had just woken up from a nap, but when I came to give them their...

    Advice needed please As some of you might have read in my previous posts 😅 one of my little girls has several tumours. They're getting bigger, she can still move about happily, she runs and climbs and jumps. The skin isn't bleeding or anything, but it is quite thin now. I just wondered when...

    Hello all, I’ve got two 8-9 month old fancy rats, Remi Wolf, and Rizzo. Remi always marked constantly, had a lot of buck grease, and would sometimes get a little too rough with Rizzo. I decided to get them neutered since Rizzo also had a decent amount of buck grease and they both had that musky...

    I brought home a rat after my living rat’s brother passed away, and there were times when they would get along, but they would mostly squabble, and ended up hurting each other a few times. We introduced him slowly and put him in the cage after they were getting along, and it seemed okay for the...

    I have a pet rat named Petri. He is about 2-3 months old and he is very wobbly. He was fine when he was younger except for a slight, slow head wobble which, after some research we thought was him navigating his way around. Recently we’ve noticed his slow head wobble turn into an extreme full...

    tldr; we got some babies to introduce to our adult boys and introductions are not going well. Advice? We are afraid of the big boys hurting the babies. We have had our two boys for over a year and decided that we needed to get some friends for when one of our older boys inevitably passes away...

    Hi all! Sorry in advance for the long post, but I need some advice on what to do with my last remaining rat. He is turning 2 this week and has lived with his previous cagemate for the past year and a half. His cagemate passed a little over a month ago. They got along pretty well -- his...

    I have been spending the majority of my night looking for good breeders as I am trying to get 2 baby rats. I have seen alot of people saying that there are no good breeders in Canada at all! Has anybody had experience with a good Canadian breeder (preferably Ontario). I would hate to have to get...

    I've had my two boys (Eddy and Antonio) for about a month now. A friend of mines got them from a PetSmart, but didn't realize the amount of care they needed (i.e. a large cage, multiple things to climb on, free roam time, etc), so gave them to me. I'm not sure they're exact age, but I think...
