    when I went to take my rats out today for play time and cage cleaning I noticed one of my rats who is about a year old now had some dirty fur around her bottom (I’m a very new rat owner) it lookEd like it was her urethra area that almost looked like she might’ve just gotten pee stuck in the fur. But it also looked just a tad swollen. What should I do

    I would definitely bring her to a vet. My main concern would be pyoderma, an infection of the uterus or possibly bladder infection.

    what Jorats said ….. both of which need immediate vet care and medication
    pyoderma is often fatal

    Just an FYI - I think you both meant pyometra (uterine infection). Pyoderma is the bacterial skin infection

    Is the yellow strong smelling like urine or foul like pus/bacteria?
