Hi,

Veterinarian101 :

My name is Dr Luke and I am here to help you today.

Veterinarian101 :

My biggest concern with putting those animals together is that rats will eat birds.

Veterinarian101 :

It is possible that if you got the rat very young that it would grow up with the dove but there is still a risk that it would eat the dove - sorry.

Veterinarian101 :

Also rats have been know to kill guines pigs too - sorry.

Veterinarian101 :

I think you would need to keep the rat pretty separate.
