Picking a Healthy Rat

Healthy rats have a bright and curious expression in their eyes, which should literally shine with intelligence and engagement. Rats raise their noses to sniff the air when they’re interested, swiveling their ears toward sounds in their environment. A rat who comes to you and smells your fingers is definitely going to make a good companion.

Look for adult rats that feel solid to the touch. You don’t want an individual that is bloated or fat, but neither do you want a bony, overly thin rat. Any rat that has a tendency to hunch over and seems lethargic or unresponsive probably isn’t healthy. If a rat is afraid, it will freeze in place, but only temporarily.

Listen for any signs of respiratory disease, especially wheezing. Respiratory issues are the number one health problem in companion rats.

Although fear can cause temporary diarrhea, the rat should not have a stained or soiled bottom and the cage should not show signs of excessive excrement.

I love to write books about pets. My books are written for everyone in an easy to read and understandable style. Some of my other titles available on Amazon (and various other book retailers) are “Kennel Cough” (ISBN 978-0-9896584-0-9 – “Capybara” (ISBN 978-1-941070-06-2) – “Wallaby and Wallaroo Care” (ISBN 978-1-941070-03-1) – “Axolotl” (ISBN 978-0-989658-43-0) – “Saltwater Fish As Pets” (ISBN 978-0-989658-46-1)…. and many more to come! Many of my titles are also available for Kindle on Amazon and as digital eBooks from various online retailers.

A Complete and Informative Beginners Guide

this book gave me a good overview of the various aspects of keeping Rats, Mice, and/or Dormice as pets. Did a good job of explaining the essentials like daily care and health. Also, went the extra mile to include some information about rodent fancy and rodent shows. All in all a good owner’s guide.

Great book for beginners

I needed a good starting book for mice for my classroom’s future pets. This had just about every question answered that I could ask.
