Re: Two brothers.. play fighting but now small wounds appear

Ill have a look around when I am next at a pet shop. Ive not seen many spot ons for small animals here Can it be used while a rat is having a flare up? I can hear a flare up I think right now though he gone normal again, so Ill keep an eye on him. Getting more rats isn't a possibility at the moment....

Re: Two brothers.. play fighting but now small wounds appear

Im sure they are bites.... the other brother is clear of any scabs. Around the scabs the skin is clear of any irritation (redness etc)

The shape of the wounds match the scars on my fingers from previous rats...... ears are clear too no scabbing there.

I see no excessive scratching either.
