My daughters rat has a scratch/cut on her tail and has seemed a little less active. Just noticed today. No other marks or anything. She is otherwise fine aside from not being quite as active and having the possible injury on her tail. Should we be concerned.

It looks like she got her tail caught somewhere, panicked and scraped off some scales. It's pretty minor so you can just watch to make sure it dries and heals

She did end up passing the next day. She continued to be lethargic and didn't recover. Her cage mate is still doing fine.

Poor baby. If she didn't have any respiratory issues it likely was physiological, like her heart. Sorry for your loss of a youngster.
