I was doing a little research on genetics and found myself on a reptile site where people talk about rat breeding occasionally. I thought that I'd likely read something I didn't agree with (considering the site purpose) but one thing I read just really made me sick. Someone posted that they "had to feed off their favorite pet rat due to myco".....and then more chimed in with similar stories. I mean, seriously? It's so cheap to buy antibiotics online and treat your rats yourself, why would feeding them to a reptile even be considered an option here? How could that thought even go through your head as an end for your "favorite pet rat"???????
