Case history and photos

Clinical Signs

Ringtail was noticed on two baby rats at the age of 12 days and treatment started (photo of one of the babies shown below).


The tails were rubbed twice a day for two weeks with mineral oil, and then reduced to once a day until weaned.


The ringtail was completely resolved.
