Feeding for 3 month olds

Hey, When I adopted my 2 new girls Mint and Mary Jane, the previous owners said that they rescued them from a breeder that wasn’t the best. They said that they fed them on children’s cereal so they were quite small. Obviously,this makes me a bit worried for their health and their growth. They seem t...

Old RI

Hey I just adopted 2 new baby rats about 3 months old with the intention of housing them with my elderly 2 when they’re ready.

Alpaca fleece

Hey just going through different bedding to see what my ratties like best. I was winding if alpaca fleece was suitable for rats or would it get tangly if that makes sense?

Thanks :)

Enrofloxacin

Hey, My rattie Petal, seems completely well but has been sneezing and grunting for a little while so I took her to the vets today.

Lump and scratch behind ear

Hiya, My rattie has a bald patch with a scab behind her ear. I'm not sure what caused it as it must've happened when they were left with a friend whilst I was away. I also noticed her cage mate had really sharp nails when I came back, so I'm thinking she might have got a scratch when they were playi...
