If every now and then a rat has Poryphin coming from the eyes is that ok? Or does that mean something's wrong.. My rat doesn't sound like she's got breathing problems but sometimes when she's at my dads house she'll wake up and it'll be there.

All rats have porphryn to some extent, its essentially a red dye in there saliva or tears that makes it look red. Some Porph is normal immediatly after waking up (like how we get sleep in our eyes), its when its regular and theres a fair bit of it and the rat looks under the weather that its an issue

Okay thanks! She usually only gets it when she wakes up every now and then and I just wipe it off with a cloth and it goes away
