The three week period is to allow for any incubation of virus and bacteria. If during this period, at any point, if any rat is ill or dies of a possible contagious disease NO rats in your care may attend. This includes ANY rats in the confines of a home as most virus' are airborne. This is to protect any rats attending the show from contagious viral & bacterial infections. PLEASE follow this rule to keep diseases from spreading through the rat community in the N.W.

All rats will go through health check. Absolutely no rats will be admitted if we feel they may carry ANYTHING detrimental to the others - Including problems with mites, lice, skin, eyes, ears, respiratory, etc. Please DO NOT bring sick or contagious animals, there will be no safe place for them.
