I was just wondering what colour pet rats teeth should be to be considered healthy, as I have only just really noticed my rats are orange =S. Mine is about a year and a half old now if that makes any difference =D Thanks!

    hi , rat teeth SHOULD be orange if they are white it means the teeth are brittle and likely to snap, rats produce a chemical that makes their teeth orang it is not the cause of not brushing teeth lol

    I have 2 rats and both their teeth are yellow and they don’t seem to bother them so i figured it’s pretty normal

    Orangish yellow is the color of normal healthy rat teeth

    rats have yellow teeth because i think they eat all the small snacks and don’t brush their teeth (lol) so their teeth might turn colour.

  • Cavy Lover UK says:

    No most rodents natural teeth colouration is shades of yellow & orange. So your rats teeth colour is perfectly normal.
    In fact its much more/rare unusual to have rodents with white teeth!
    As baby rodents are born with yellow/orange teeth.
    So don’t worry its normal! xxx

    yellow/orange is healthy. it is important to give your rat things to chew to help keep them worn down, as overgrown teeth can be a problem.
    rats teeth actually grow faster than cavities can form, so plaque buildup is not a problem for them!
