So all my rats are together now, but one is a little sniffly. They're not at the point the have toys in the cage but they seem to be getting on ok. Few squeaks here and there.

Im going to try and get a vet appointment for tomorrow but do I need to take all the rats so i am not splitting them up or do I just take the one with the sniffles?

I would take all of them, it will help bond them a bit more. Good luck.

Agreed. I always take rats to the vet in pairs at minimum anyway, since having a friend helps keep the patient calmer. It also gets other rats used to vet trips so that if they ever have to go themselves, they're less stressed since they've done it before and nothing terrible happened. A group outing is an excellent bonding opportunity.
