I'm pretty sure my rats have skin mites. They are itching and making sores on the skin. I checked them thoroughly to make sure it wasn't lice. I am in the process of starting treatment but I have a quick question. Two out of four rats are from a breeder and super sweet. The third is extremely aggressive and I cant even get my hands near her. The fourth I believe is about to go. She is very old and not eating and drink a lot. The problem is I cant handle the mean one to bathe her and I don't want to move around my old rat more than I have to. I am not sure how I can treat all my rats if I cant really handle two of them. I was wondering if anyone had any tricks to get them bathed without stressing them out. I really hate to separate them or really move the old one around. Any tips would be appreciated.

Bathing is good for some quick relief but it isn't necessary to rid them of mites... I would go for an easy spot on treatment like Revolution to minimize the amount of contact you need to have with her.
