Is it possible to be allergic to a rat that I just got as a pet?

All of a sudden, I just can't stop sneezing.

yes that is possible after all you can't know if you are allergic to something if you have never been exposed to it before.

It is quite possible to be allergic to any animal, including your beloved pet rat. Go get checked out with your doctor, and go from there.

People can be allergic to any pet. You can also grow to be allergic to an existing pet in the household. It could also just be a coincidence of the acquiring a new pet and a seasonal allergy. It also might disappear with time. Try keeping it is a different room and experiment with the allergy.
