I want to take a moment here and express my overwhelming thanks to the many listed here that took the time to share photos, case histories, knowledge, and experience in caring for the health of rats.

Thanks to all those wonderful veterinarians that took the time from busy schedules to review the Rat Health Guide, and approve or add to the wealth of information here. What would we ever do without your loving care of the many precious ratties in need?
