One of my girls has a tiny black spot, the size of the head of a pin, on the very tip of her ear. I assume its a scab because i cant imagine what else it would be. She does clean and itch herself pretty often but Im pretty sure shes always done it, since i haven't noticed an increase. for the past year i just thought she was picky about her coat. She was at the vet two weeks ago for a health certificate and the vet said she looked good.

I pushed back her fur all over her face, neck, and body, but didnt see any redness, scabs, or lice.

my question is, do ratties sometimes just knick themselves and get little scabs? what should i be looking for in the future to determine if she needs another vet visit?
