Rat Bleeding from Nose and Mouth – Cause and FIX!

Question: We have just bought our little “Rattie” and she also has a little bit of, what looks like blood around the right nostril. Should we be concerned.

He has ample room in his cage, and he comes out at least once a day. It seems like it started after we went on vacation and left him with a friend of the family. In the mornings he bangs on the top of his cage for food…could this be the cause?

If hes banging his nose often and doing it hard theres a good chance thats why his nose is bleeding,specialy if there is nothing else wrong with him…….try taking him to the vet if you can im sure he can help.
