Unfortunately, there are not enough veterinarians who care or know how to treat Dumbo rats. If you do not find a vet that specializes with Dumbo Rat health in your location, I would recommend going to one that treat small animals and exotic.
Here are some common problems in Dumbo Rat health:
Porphyrin: Almost everyone who keeps rats saw red provisions, from the eyes or nose. This is Porphyrin. Porphyrin is a pigment and is important in Dumbo Rat health. It is important to check that it appears in a small amount. Large amount of porphyrin indicates the state of stress or illness. Reasons to stress: Noises, strong smells, unfamiliar people, new neighbors in a cage, a trip to a new place and more.
