Q: Bit By a Rat?
I was bit by a rat what should I do? The rat was in petco so it was not wild it was domestic, also I would not think I would have to do anything about it cause when my dad had his rats Wild bit me once and I never needed to do anything about Wild bitting me. Then when I had hamsters for the first time Visous bit me but she bit everyone and I never had to do anything about that. So What should I do?

I agree with Daryl. Just make sure you're up-to-date on your tetanus shot, keep the wound clean, & watch for any signs of infection. If you're worried about rabies, don't. It's not like this rat was out in the wild where it could have consumed an infected animal.
