So I did something enormously stupid. I have 4 rats that have been with me for a while and I like to feed them apple sauce and the like on my fingers, they're used to it and have never bitten me, just lots of licks. I just got another boy (who is neutered) and decided in my great stupidity to also feed him off my finger. As you can imagine, I got a really hard bite - lots of bleeding and such - and I've since learned my lesson about feeding new rats off my finger. I'm pretty sure it was an accident, he's never shown any aggression otherwise. Anyways, I'm wondering what the likelihood of rat bite fever is from pet rats is? Anything I need to be on the lookout for? He's a bit sick (planning on going to the vet for that on Monday) but I'm pretty sure that rat sicknesses like that doesn't transfer over but I'm just a little concerned. Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.
