pet rat vaginal bleedingHello,
I have a pet rat who recently began bleeding occasionally from her vagina. I bought her and another pet rat from a fancy rat breeder a little over a year ago. The only issues I've had with her health so far are symptoms of mycoplasmosis including sneezing, porphryin (red mucus) staining around the nose, and sometimes the eyes. Lately, she has blood coming out of her vagina, not all the time, but perhaps a couple times a day in spurts. Other than that, she seems fine, not lethargic or anything.
Her diet consists mainly of Midori Rat Blocks which are what the breeder fed them, rolled oats, and a variety of organic fruits and veggies given once a day or every other day. I also feed them yogurt on occasion and other foods as I have them including organic chicken bones which I've read are fine for them. Since she's been bleeding, I began feeding both of them a little bit of raw cow's milk each day (which I have begun to drink as well).
I have read that this symptom could either be a urinary tract infection or a tumor. Can anyone help give suggestions on how to help her through her diet and/or homeopathy?
I read a past post on this topic, but I still am not sure exactly what steps to take.
P.S. I don't want to take her to the vet or give her antibiotics. I want to heal her naturally.

However, I do have another issue with her (sigh- there's always something) and maybe you could help me. She has scabs all over and is itching herself a lot. She does have rather sharp nails so I have to trim them frequently. My other rat doesn't have as sharp nails and has no scabs or skin problems. So I don't think it's mites because my other rat would have them too in that case.
It might just be her sharp nails, but I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to relieve her itching, because it's causing her to be uncomfortable and give herself scabs.
Do you have any ideas?
