    Help! My newer rat is injured and won't come out from under fridge

    I've had borris and bendy for just under a month now. Borris ended up escaping while I was cleaning their cage and ended up under my fridge. I've had so many rats before so at first I know to leave food and water and attempt to lure or in a safe manner manage to trap him. Until today I was...

    8m/o rat started discharging porphyrin from one eye this afternoon? (Photos)

    Hi all, I’m a little worried now and I’m looking for someone to guide me in what may be happening to my little man. This afternoon I’ve discovered that one of my boys was discharging porphyrin from his right eye. The eye itself doesn’t look infected or scratched. I’ve cleaned it off twice now...

    Argh! Degloved tail, again? (photos, need help!!)

    I posted about a month ago about one of my boys, Obi, who I thought had a degloved tail at the time. Apparently it was a “nail tail” but since then I think he really degloved it! (Sorry for the flashy photo, it’s hard to get him to sit still- plus it’s the middle of the night!) It’s red, so...
