It's fairly unlikely that you'll ever come across a black rat, and if you've seen a rat just recently it is likely to have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus).

Rat Bite Wounds

Whilst not all that common in Britain, rat bites do happen every once in a while, and in certain instances they can have serious consequences. If you stumble upon a rat in a confined environment, it could bite you if it is cornered or pressured, therefore leave it a clear exit route and try to avoid it at all costs.

You would think that people would be cautious about poking their hand in a rat's cage, but as rats are frequently kept as pets (are you kidding?), this is a rising cause of rat bites. Rat bites are not necessarily dangerous, though should be avoided when possible, and they can turn nasty or even life threatening if they turn into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis). If it isn't treated quickly "rat bite fever" (RBF) has a 10% mortality rate.

  • Swelling or Redness
  • Fever
  • Muscle Pain
  • Vomiting
  • A Rash
  • Headaches
  • Joint Pain or Swelling

You should immediately wash the affected area with warm water, if you get bitten by a rat, and then apply an antibiotic cream to the bite area, and cover it with a clean, sterile bandage or gauze. Even if the bite doesn't appear to be that serious, you must make an appointment to see your GP or go to the nearest A&E department. Having a tetanus vaccine is also advisable, especially if it is more than 5 years since you've had one.
