Hello there,
I'm pretty sure at least one of my girl rats has diarrhoea, and I've never dealt with anything like this. Does anyone know what foods I can give them now and what to do so that it stops?
They're all acting normal, and seem to have clean bottoms, so... any tips on discovering the one that's ill?
Thank you :)

Avoid fruits, veggies, baby food. Make sure they are still drinking plus staying hydrated and just keep them on a staple block diet until it subsides. Vet visit is in order if it continues on a staple diet.

You can also give some plain yogurt containing probiotics to encourage good bacteria in the intestines. If it does not improve within a couple of days, on the staple and yogurt I would see a vet since it could be something serious.

BRAT diet - bananas, brown rice, applesauce, and toast
Canned plain pumpkin
Probiotics
Small amount of pedialyte

If it persists definitely see a vet, as diarrhea can be serious.
