    Hi! I recently got 2 seven week old girl rats, and for the first couple days they were fine, but they have started to sneeze a lot. however, when left alone for a long enough amount of time, the sneezing will lessen by a lot. Is it possible they are sneezing because they are streesed? If they...

    My rats, mainly Gerard, have been sneezing and they have been breathing a bit funny. Should I get them checked out or are they fine? I'm quite worried.

    Noticed a palpable mass on her left side, descending down to her stomach. Sort of sticks out. Doesn’t feel squishy like mammary tumor. She was spayed 9 months ago and always felt like she had scar tissue in abd after. She is approximately 18-19months old, nearing 2 years. Still eating and...

    The lump is movable, but solid. I'm a first time rat owner, so I don't know what it is. Google said it could be a tumor, so if it is I just wanna know what to do. My rat is about 18 months old, and I don't have enough money to afford anything to get it fixed. The lump is relatively small, so she...

    My boy Moon has been slowly losing hair for a bit, he’s getting older so I thought maybe it had to do with that so I didn’t look too far into it. Earlier tonight though, I took a closer look and noticed many mites/lice/little parasites in his fur. They’re very small, cylindrical and...

    I’ve recently noticed that one of my rats eyes has been a little bigger, but didnt think much of it, and decided to keep a close watch on it. Just now, I saw it bulge really big, and then go back down a second later. This has never happened before, and im really scared. Any tips or ideas? (Im...

    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'm guessing that's due to them being rex so their fluffy coat hides it a bit. When I brought them home -and even in the...

    Hi everyone! I woke up this morning and went to check on my rats, and I noticed that my rat Thistle has what looks like a hurt toe. It doesn't seem to be bothering him because he’s walking and grabbing on to things fine. Even when I touch it he doesn’t seem to be in pain. I can’t tell if it’s...

    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...

    Hello all! 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...

Can someone please tell me they’ll be okay 😭 they’re nuts I didn’t think they would sneak over to my bed (because they usually stay near their cage when it’s open) but they literally snuck to...
