Please note that the usual infection guidelines apply.

It is recommended that you should ideally leave a two week gap between shows.

*Do not bring rats to a show if you have an active infection in your rats or have had any ill rats/unexplained deaths in the 2 weeks prior to a show.
*Do not bring rats to a show if you have taken in rats from an unknown source (usually pet shop or rescue) in the last 2 weeks.
*Do not bring rats to a show that have been unwell or had surgery recently, are on any medication, don’t cope well with travel and stressful situations, are very old or very young (remember, kittens must be 6 weeks old to be allowed to be sold or exchanged, and 8 weeks old to be shown) or who are not ill but who have have chronic conditions’ e.g. head tilt, recurrent nasal rattle.

We ask people to be vigilant and assess your rats health carefully.
