I'm aware that rats can't have citrus because it causes kidney cancer, but I fed my male rats the white strings from a cutie (clementine). Apparently this can also cause cancer. Should I be concerned?
I don't think they were being rude at all. The way you worded your original post made it sound like you already knew that citrus was not good for rats, but decided to give them part of a citrus fruit anyway, and are now concerned. If you are going to make a post, please make sure you word it carefully, otherwise you should expect people to respond accordingly on a public forum. That being said, I wouldn't feed them any kind of citrus (including any parts of the citrus fruit) again in the future to be safe, keep a close eye on your rat, and if anything unusual presents take them to the vet.@erinsweeney , I fed him the white strings of the clementine, not the actual clementine. Also, I was not aware at the time that citrus was harmful. If you are going to be rude, do not respond to my posts. Thank you
