Ok so my rat Timothy has this blood like looking stuff on his nose. I know it's not blood but I forget the name of it. Anyway I posted something on here before about it. But it just went away. It's back. It doesn't look to bad and his eyes coat ears everything is normal. He is eating and drinking and he runs around like normal. What can I do. Is it just normal for him or is it a URI or something else. Thanks in advance.

Thanks I'm probably going to take them in a some point because I want to get it checked out.

I've also heard that many times you don't see it because they groom it off regularly. Maybe you're just catching it on him before he grooms it off or maybe after he's been sleeping and hasn't cleaned it off yet ;-) I don't think I'd worry too much about it if there aren't any other symptoms. My rat has this discharge regularly, although I don't usually see it on him--I see it on his cardboard tissue boxes and shoe boxes that he LOVES to chill in.
