advice please - rats ate rubber!
hello everyone. I have made a terrible (and embarrassing) mistake. I left a box of three condoms on the same table as my rat cage...well, in the hour I was away they somehow managed to grab the box, and they gnawed through it. they removed two of them, chewed through the packaging, and ate them. I found two of the thicker ring parts from the bottoms, so I know that they ate the rest between the two of them. it does not appear that they ate any of the other packaging, and they did not have any lubrication or chemicals. they are both acting completely normal, but I am very worried. I can't believe I let this happen. there is no vet I could take them to at this hour, does anyone have any experience with their rats eating rubber accidentally? I am planning to stay up tonight to keep an eye on them, should I take them to the vet in the morning? thank you so much for your help.
