One of my Rats just bit Berk's little boy on the finger it went threw the nail. She is trying to get ahold of a doc she thinks that you can get something from a bad bite. Does anyone know what that could be or what we should do

Re: Bad rat bite

Is Berk a Human? I dont think they carry anything but I could be Wrong.

Why did he bite? Someone squeeze to tight?

Yes she is a human she is a member on here and that is her screen name. He put his fingers threw that cage wire that is when my girls seem to bite

Perry bit through my nail and it was fine. I just rinsed it out and it's grown out without issue.

Rat bites don't usually turn out too badly, in my experience.

Just in case anyones wondering, I talked to my sons doctor and he said since it is a domesticated rat bite there should be no problems. We dont have to worry about rabies or rat bite fever. At most he may get a staph infection or something along those lines just because of dirt being there when he got bit. It bled like crazy and the doctor said that was actually good to help against infection as well.
Thanks to all who replied so quickly, I appreciate it:)
