I've noticed my rat scratching a lot since I brought her home. Can rats get fleas, mites, or lice? If so, how do you treat it?

Yes, yes, and yes.

Fleas and lice would likely be visible to the naked eye. Mites would not. Mites can also cause hair loss, scabs, etc.

It's generally treated by oral Invermection or spot-on Revolution (the puppy/kitten kind).

Both can be gotten from a vet.

Spot on is good as it is cheap and can keep off fleas for up to 4 weeks we use it on the cat and dog it works better then the expensive stuff :D you can also get it from the local pet shop I find it at pets at home but if you live in America I have no idea lol
