Is something like Rescue Remedy safe for use on small pets like rats? We've got a tooth issue with one of our rats, and in between vet tooth trims, I try to trim a bit myself. I managed to snip off some excess length a time or two, but she's so squirmy and scared that I'm afraid I'll accidentally cut her tongue or lip. I've been having to take her in every 2-3 weeks for a trim, but at $40 per trip it's adding up to quite the expense. I figured that if I could do something to help her calm down it might be easier for her - and me - when I try to tend to her problem (and also whenever I have to take her in for the vet to do it). I read about people scruffing a rat in order to hold them still, but I haven't tried that before. Unless maybe the way we've been trying to hold her is considered scruffing. I'm not sure.[/h]
