So I was walking my dog around the neighbourhood and then I spotted a rat that be laying on the floor. It was still breathing but half of the tail be gone. I wanted to help but I was worried that it was a sewer rat and might have rabies. What should i do?
The most humane entry to do would be to take the poor rat to the Humane Society or a wild animal rescue group. They would make certain the rat was checked by a vet and make the decision as to how defectively the rat is hurt. If necessary they would be able to humanely euthanize the rat. Being a wild rat it would be best to pick it up and wrap it contained by a towel. Rats are actually quite clean animals, but as near any wild animal they are prone to having fleas. There is no completely humane way to put a rat out of it's agony that a lay person can do. I personally would not have moved out it laying where it was. I would enjoy at the very least taken it to a secure environment, attempted to contribute it food and water. At least if it passed on it's own it would be contained by a safe, loving environment.
Answers: If he is still alive grab a towel, and use it to pick him up. Wrap him surrounded by the towel and set him in a box. Then take him to an animal hospital or a place where they purloin wild animals. I cant remember what they are called, but i know that there are places resembling that. They will take in any wild animal that requests help, I had to take tot rabbits to a place like that once. Otherwise, I guess you could kill it, but maybe bring it to a humane society so it can be put to sleep. Because whether you dont kill it right it will be in serious pain.
pick it up (dont worry) take her back home and rap her up surrounded by a old towel. Wash your hands with LOTS of soap, after bandage up her tail and fix her up a cage. make her have a feeling welcome and give her a name. If you are really concerned, contact a vet
Quickly contact a vet as soon as possible
Leave it alone it will dispense u rabbies.
honorably put it out of its misery, of course it's probably unmoving now, but hey, life goes on.
If part of your leg was gone, would you want someone to put to death you?
I'd probably call a vet and ask, maybe do an internet search for signs of rabies on rats.
Call me an animal sympathizer, but whether you could, let it die comfortable. Give it some food, move it to a patch of grass to lay on. But use something between your skin and the rat. Just because it doesn't have rabies doesn't mean that it doesn't hold germs.
