    One of my rats is injured, but I don't know how or where. He squeaks when I pick him up, and sometimes he'll be walking around and then starts squeaking. He has no visible wounds or bruises, but he's constantly grooming the very tip of his tail. Is it broken? Please help!

    So one of my rats, Dixie, was acting very strange during playtime. When I first got her, she was very nervous and scared because she wasn’t socialized. The previous owner had her for a week before surrendering. This meant I had to do all of the socializing and after a few months she’s been...

    I am based in Gloucestershire and looking for rat breeders in the area. I have found Brunel Rats over in Swindon and a hobby breeder in Bath. The hobby breeder in Bath looks new and I have read some old posts on here about Brunel Rats which don't look good. Anyone use these breeders? What...

    Hi, I need some advice on my new pet rats. I've owned rats before, and I lost my last one last month, but I'm definitely not an expert on them. Today I decided I was ready to buy new rats as I love owning them and it doesn't feel right not having any around. I bought 3 that are 7 weeks old and 1...

    Hello! I’ve had my two girl dumbo rats for about 5 months now and one of them is developing red crusty bits around her eye. She usually squints it shut but she can open it and doesn't seem to be in much pain. I’ve read this could be an infection. My rat is still very shy and anxious about me...
