    My 2 year old rat Demon has been really itchy the past week or so and I’ve noticed some scabs on her side and back. From doing research I’m pretty positive she has mites Bc I don’t notice any lice or bugs on her and it looks like she’s losing a bit of hair on her neck and arms :( I’m thinking I...

    Hi, I just got rats a few days ago from a rescue centre. Over the past few days, I’ve noticed they have had excessively itching behind the ears, on the neck area, and on the face. I looked at their fur and I couldn’t see anything so I’m assuming it’s mites. I’ve done tons of research for this...

    I think my rat has mites and I can't upload a picture but he has a bunch of scabs on his back and under his neck. Does anyone have any products or medicine to help get rid of them???

    My boy had mites with a lot of scabbing, but he's on Revolution now. It's been a couple weeks but his skin still looks really irritated - however upon closer inspection this could just be buck grease. What do you guys think?

    My two boys were prescribed Revolution by their vet for mites. The first dose was administered at the vet's office, and unfortunately the next dose 10 days later would need to be administered while i was out of town. I explained to my petsitter how it worked and left the instructions for her...

    New rat owner here! I just bought a bag of rent a coop hemp bedding and was wondering if I should freeze it before using. I would have to put in small batches at a time but it’s doable. I read somewhere that hemp actually deters any mites or lice, not sure if that’s true. I believe rent a coop...
