I didn't know what catagory to post this in so I will just post it here. I have owned rats for around half of a year now and I have noticed that around the cage I would find little clusters of fur/hair (not big chunks) with skin or something on the end which makes me assume that my rat is either ripping his fur out or the other one is ripping it out for him. I can't see that there is any hair issing when I look at him but if I search for it I can find scabs on his body but they are more on his back and I have not found ny on his face or ears or tail or feet or belly, or anything like that. I have read about rats having mites but I don't think that is what it is because I have read that rats with mites show excessive hair loss in big chunks on their body but my rat doesn't have that. I have two rats and I have noticed that my other rat looked like he had his whiskers cut off with scissors or something. I don't belive they were like that when I got them and I of course would NEVER do that to him. I am suspecting that it wasmy other rat because I think that he would get jelous when his brother would get yummy starwberry flavoured medication and he wouldn't and he smelled it on his brothers whiskers and decided to just chew them off. I have read that this is called barbering and that you shouldn't really worry too too much because the wiskers will grow back. All feedback is appreciated. Don't be rude.
