How do I treat a rat foot injury?


Answer by  aussiegirl (711)

the area needs to be kept clean and dry until the wound is healed. to clean it, bath his foot in some warm salty water (1 tsp of salt = 1 cup warm water) try something like a drink bottle cap to put his foot into. Change his bedding to something like newspaper, and clean regularly.

Take the rat to a qualified exotics vet, who can make sure no amputation or surgery is required and prescribe a proper course of treatment (soaking, wraps, etc).
