    Hi everyone, I'm new here and looking for some advice regarding four male rats I bought on Friday. I bought them from a 'reputable' breeder in the area, however I found when the breeder arrived the way he treated the rats didn't sit right with me (picking them up by their tails etc) and the...

    Can Crested geckos get mites fromhermit crabs? My daughter has been taking really good care of her 2 hermit crabs and her crested gecko. Night before last while feeding the pets she noticed something weird in her hermit crab tank but didn't say anything. Last night she came into my room crying...
  4. Rabbit Discussion
    Hi all, I'm new here and I was hoping you could help me out :) My albino rabbit is 5-6 months old, I really don't know, and for the past month or so I've noticed that her feet seem to be losing fur at the toe area (and her nails have grown quite long) and her nose is really dirty. I thought it...

    Just got over ringworm treatment from the vet. Now when I was feeding my boys I let them crawl on my arms as I fed them. Very soon I felt itchy. Looked down and had small raised bumps on my arm . Put bleach on it which is what i did for the ringworm I caught from them. Burned really badly...

    Ma-Ha always has an itchy ear. I took her to the vet and they thought it was ear mites so they gave her a shot that was supposed to get rid of them, but it didn't help. I also got ear drops and that didn't help either. It's mostly just one ear, but I've seen her other ear bother her a few times...
  7. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I was wondering what rats look like if they have mites. I googled pictures and neither of the rats have sores or anything on their bodies. But something weird is happening - they're both kind of turning pink. Like, they're whit, and Gracie has always had a slight pinkish tinge to her fur on her...

    So, the other day when I picked up Millie (my Gaint African Millipede), I noticed she had some mites. They are the little nasty white kind, so they are not the beneficial ones. I was reading up on what to do about them, and I saw some interesting/weird things: Rub the millipede with alchohol...

    Hi everyone. I have a mouse who's nearly two years old and recently she has been scratching loads, enough that she now has a bald head and it looks very sore. I have just got back from the vets where she got a mite treatment and I have to take her back for two more doses. The vet said it...

  12. Other Pets
    Well, to continue my day of bad pet luck, I discovered Millie has an infestation of mites in her tank. I know as far as hermit crabs go, they dont acually hurt the crabs... theyre just kinda gross. But can they acually hurt millipedes? I have the wierd lil ones that fly around... they kinda...

    Yes VanRat, long ago you told me humans are usually allergic to rat mites, not the rats themselves. Here's how I think this went down: I've only developed allergies to Timmy, since getting that guy Buddy. I had buddy 2 weeks, he gave me rashes and welts and hives and asthma...UGH. So, totally...
