πŸ€ How to treat Rats for Mites πŸ€ | Rat care

[Music]

hi guys welcome back to my channel in

today's video I want to talk about

something I experienced recently and

that is mites in rats I wasn't gonna

make a video on this because it

personally was not something that I'd

experienced before

and I wasn't fully educated on it so

it's thanks to my friend rata T only

entire links in the description that I

was able to learn more about it and

treat it but I thought it was important

to share my experience anyway in case

your rights happen to get mites and this

video is somewhat helpful to you now

this all started back in February I'd

had the baby rights for about a month

and I noticed that Bono had some blood

on his back and my mind immediately

jumped to the new baby rats and I

thought that one of them had attacked

him but the blood was easy to notice

because he is white well he's supposed

to be white he's kind of a creamy color

but it was more easy to notice than it

would be on other rats because he does

have white fur so what I messaged my

friend about this panicking that they

were fighting

she's just it was maybe mics and I

should treat for this and this made a

lot more sense in my mind because when I

did feel him over he did have a couple

more scubs over in his body so what our

rat mites there's small little parasites

and usually you can't actually see them

now they're different from other

parasites such as fleas or likes which

you can see now they're usually present

in small numbers but if you're right has

a particularly weak immune system then

it can flare up and the symptoms can

appear and we will have to treat them

for it now mites can be brought in from

new rats or from bedding and food that

you use so if this is the case I suggest

freezing all food and bedding that

you're bringing in before you use it

with your mouse

now don't let this put you off keeping

rats at all most animals that we do keep

in our homes do you actually get things

like fleas and mites it doesn't mean

rats about anymore dirtier than any

other animals because your average dog

and cat will probably get fleas at some

point in its lifetime when it's just

something that you have to deal with it

doesn't mean that rats are any more

disgusting and to be honest I've had

more flea issues with my dogs than the

one time I've had to treat for miles now

we don't actually have any photos of

Beru of this going on because there's

more focused on getting him treated and

making sure I was doing the right thing

well in certain pictures if I have any

of him on here or some other pictures of

other rocks that are suffering from

mites just seeking it a little bit

an idea of what to look for and what all

kind of happened to your right if they

do have a Mike flower so because you

can't see Mike's you just have to assume

that there that and treat for them and

most often you'll see your right

scratching themselves mostly around on

their shoulders on the back of their

neck and oftentimes they can make

themselves bleed and scab over and if

this is the case and chances are your

actors have mites so how do you treat it

so you're going to want to go out and

get a small animal my treatment and

you're gonna want to make sure it

contains I'm going to completely butcher

these names I'm a medicine or seller

Matson now this is something you can

either go to your folks for or you can

actually find it online or in some

stores so it's worth treating all the

wraps you have in your cage just in case

and if your rat's are scratching after

three weeks of applying the solution

then you're going to want to you either

try and treat them again or I suggest

consulting your vet to see if they have

any other alternatives but if there is

any other issues that may be causing him

to scratch themselves so the one that I

used is the beefer antiparasite spot-on

now this is good because it does contain

I haven't met Cyn and the only problem

with this is that it does require you to

put a lot of it on the back of your

right which can make them really wet but

it does contain the right ingredients to

treat them and this is the one that I

personally used the one I use comes with

dosages on the back and if you are

treating rats or other small animals

that under 300 grams and you have to get

one that is Mable dumpsters this one is

for rabbits guinea pigs ferrets and rats

so if you do have maybe we're actually

going to have to get a one that's

marketed at hamsters to make sure you're

giving them a safe dosage all the dudes

just dosages are on the back so this

one's very easy to use the only problem

with this is again you have to put quite

a lot on the back of their neck which

can make them really wet and then you

have to wait for them to dry a little

bit so to apply the treatment you want

to part the fur on the back of their

neck and apply it all over their skin on

the back of their shoulders and their

neck

it's not a good idea to leave them

separate from their cage mates for a

little period of time just to make sure

they can draw as much as possible and so

that the other arts don't groom it off

them another thing you should do if you

are able to I know it's really difficult

and I myself haven't really mastered the

best way of doing this is to cut their

claws and doing this can prevent them

from actually scratching themselves and

causing a lot of damage and making

themselves bleed it's not the mics that

are making them bleed but it's them

scratching themselves so if you can cut

their course while they're still trying

to go in for the mic problem then this

will help considerably to stop them from

damaging their skin and that's basically

how you treat your axe from life if you

do think your brats have mics I really

hope that treatment helps them if you

have tried to treat you an option that

doesn't work I highly suggest you go to

your vet and ask them what to do because

they will know what to do and give you a

professional answer roley's skin has

cleaned up really nicely since I first

noticed the problem the reason I'm

treating him again in these clips that

you would have seen is just to make sure

that it doesn't return the others on him

have been scratching a little bit so I

wanted to treat them again just to make

sure that everything was under control

and that they were going to be okay if

you yourself of experience might seem

rocks or any other small angle and you

have any suggestions please leave them

down in the comments I would love to

hear your experiences I hope this was

helpful to some of you subscribe for it

see more unrelated reason me and we'll

see you in our next video bye
