my young girl has just had babies and they're 2 weeks old but every time I get them out I keep finding nit like bugs on them! have no idea how they've got them. because I only had the momma rat a few days before she give birth so she must have had them before I had her. and I thought that they'd be too young to get them.but anyway what can I do about them?

Okay. You can use revolution on the mother (kitten/puppy concentration) which you can purchase at petsofoz, joespetmeds or petshed. You only need three drops from one bottle. You cannot dose the babies until they're 5 wks old safely. Mama's dose may help them.

You can also do olive baths to help while waiting for meds http://sophielynette.com/oliveoil.html
