Important Checklist for adopting or buying a Rat
Before making contact, or planning a visit for this Rat, please make sure you have considered all the points made on the below checklist. We advise that you DO NOT buy a Hedgehog from the advertiser unless you are happy that you can tick off every point on this list and are confident that the advertiser is genuine. If you have any concerns over an advertiser please report them to us.
The fact that you’re considering adopting, or buying a new Rat is an important decision. Your new friend will solely rely on you in many ways, so it's important that you’re 100% committed beforehand. You can do further reading about caring for a rodent and their well-being in our pet advice section.
Is the advertiser genuine?
Confirm that the advertiser is genuine. You can do this by arranging a visit with the potential advertisers home, if they try to avoid you visiting, or make excuses, then you should be concerned. If the advertiser asks for money, or deposit to be paid online without you visiting the rodent at their home, or they request to meet you somewhere or drop the rodent off at yours, then please DO NOT agree. We advise that you should never send money online. If you’re concerned about an advertisers authenticity then please report them to us.
MyPetZilla conducts various checks on advertisers on this site, but are unable to confirm that all are genuine. So please make sure you visit the advertiser at their home and verify this yourself.
Age of the rodent
The vast majority of rodents should be at least 6 weeks of age before they can leave their mothers. There is an exception of Guinea Pigs and they should be at least 3 weeks of age before they leave their mothers. Hamsters, Gerbils and Degus should be 4 weeks of age and Hedgehogs, Sugar Gliders, Chinchillas and Pygmy should be at least 8 weeks of age.
Health check of the rodent
It is very important that you check the health of your rodent before you decide to adopt or buy. Although this can be difficult, most sellers will agree that you can return the rodent within 48 hours should they have any health issues. It's worth taking your rodent to the vet for a complete health check as soon as you take them home. The seller should be willing for you to do this. If the reptile has already had a health check by the sellers veterinary practice, then they should provide you with the legitimate paperwork to support this. It is also worth ringing the vet to confirm everything beforehand.
