Hi all, Hoping to get a bid of advice. So around 5 hours ago, we found 4 baby orphan rats. I’m sure it was a nest of 6 but I think one of the dogs got two of them. Nearly positive that the mum was killed by the dog, (don’t know if it was the mum or the dad) but another one of the parents got eaten by a snake (We saw it.) I’m unsure on what to do. I have done lots of research but still can’t seem to find the answers that I need. This isn’t the first time I have raised rats before, I've taken care of a new born rat before...but that was years ago. Now that I have found a nest of 4, I feel like I don’t have the slightest idea on what to do. I have a lot of experience with orphan animal after raising joeys, baby birds etc but I haven’t raised a group of rats before. They look to be 2 weeks old, but are very bouncy which makes me think they could be 3 weeks old? Not sure. They are in a box all snuggled up together in the materials that I use for Joeys, so they are warm, but I can tell that they are stressed out by me being around. I have been trying to feed them, but they don’t want any warm milk or any solids, what can I do? I have some other questions; however, any information is greatly appreciated. - How often do they need to be fed? I read every 2 hours for new-borns, but what about 2/3 week olds? - When can they start having solids? They won’t touch any food. -How much milk (in ml) should they have per feed? -How warm do they need to be? They do have fur, but I did put a heat pack in there for them (I made sure it wasn't too hot) However they preferred to just snuggle up together in the blankets rather than be by the heat source; is that enough for them to keep warm? -Also, one of them has a small cut by the base of its tail, should I clean it or just leave it to heal by itself? I'm not sure what it got cut by, maybe the dog, but they're so small and squirmy so it would be hard to treat. -What milk can I use? I really need some advice asap, as I really want to ensure these guys have the best chance of survival. That’s all the questions I can think of currently, but if you guys have any advice or information, I would love to hear it. Thank you!
