    My current rat is 2 years old and has chronic Mycoplasma (I believe that’s what it’s called), an upper respiratory infection. He is in good health and is on medicine on and off per the vets orders. He is quite shy and it is next to impossible to get him out of his cage for free roam. He was not...

    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...

    Hi again! I've been posting a lot lately, but I thought I would try to get to know the Rat Forum community more.

    One of my new pet rats is a big kissy boy. He likes to snuggle right up to my face, and it’s my instinct to lean in and kiss him on his little face when he does. He also likes to give me kisses back, right on the mouth. Will this make me sick, or is it okay to let him lick my lips like that? And...

    Hey guys I am very concerned and could use some help. i was cleaning my rats cage (I have 3 boys) and I noticed drops of blood all over some of the wood. There was a lot of drops, and I’m really concerned because I checked my rats and couldn’t seem to find any wounds. I saw a little bit of what...

    I have ten rats that I'm struggling to get properly treated by the exotics vet and a non-exotics vet (that has treated rats over the last five odd years). I've had little help with either, and little progression in treatment. Other vets have told me they won't see my rats because they're not an...

    I apologize for not finding the right sub-forum for my Post. This is about illness and possible death of pets. Long story cut kind of short. Before committing to getting pet rats for the first time, I checked off the necessity list: •Exotics vet in the country (explicitly stated over ten...

    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...

    I'm so happy to be here and meet more fellow pocket ninja enthusiasts! I believe I had an account on here years ago so that I could ask a question about socialization for one of my angels --with wings now, sadly--but I'm struggling to find the information after so long, so I went ahead and made...

    My rat keeps licking my teeth and other sections of my mouth. Should I let her? I don’t know if it will make me sick or not. Is she doing it because I probably have food in my teeth, or is she giving me affection? She won’t stop trying to lick my mouth.
