How sick is the rat with the URI? How long has she/he been sick and are they being treated?

As for the males, how old is your boy and how dominant is he?

I mean i’ve been giving him his meds which is doxy and baytril everyday morning and night and my boy is 8 months. he isn’t really agressive when around other male rats but i’m thinking about getting a baby rat but i’m scared he is going to hurt it

8 months is the peak time of hormones, dominance aggression. You could try a 8 week old baby but not any younger as he may not recognize baby as a rat and try to kill it. A baby is less threat to his dominance. Or an older mellow male will work.
