I've been sick the last couple days and just got a throat swab test to check for strep. I'll get the results tomorrow morning. I've read that the strain of strep humans get is different from the strain of strep that rats can get, and there isn't really a risk for rats catching human strep throat. I also called my vet and asked her. She said it's very unlikely, but just to be careful just in case and gave me a list of symptoms to look for.

In case I do have strep, I thought I would ask. Has anyone ever heard of someone's rats getting sick after a person had strep? I just worry about my babies! Especially since 3 currently need special hands-on care right now.
