    I just got 3 boys and they don't seem right.. I suspect they didn't have a proper diet. They feel "bone-y" when I hold them even though they don't look skinny at first glance.

    I recently saw something about bumble foot, so I looked at my rats' feet and I saw these bumps. They've had them for awhile and it doesn't look like they're bothering them. I'm super paranoid about it so I wanted to get some more opinions. I'm currently unable to get them to a vet, as I rely on...

I was hoping some of you would have some experience with this, but the other night (Probably about 4 days ago) my boyfriend was giving our rat babies a bath, when he noticed one of our girls is missing one toenail on one of her back-paws and THREE on her other back paw. She was kind...

    One of my rats Daphne knocked over a cup of flat diet coke that I didn't know was on my floor. She had some on her back and on her little hands and feet. The time frame was very short so she couldn't have had much if any. I know that drinking soda is deadly but I'm not 100% sure if it's because...
