Squealing and shaking?

So. My female rat (estimated age: 4mnths?) had a bath. During the bath, she squealed. She won't eat her rat food. But she'll eat tomatoes. She's shaking. What's wrong:(?

Squealing and shaking?

I have a couple rats who always squeal when I give them a bath and they'll pout for a while and not eat anything but treats. That is probably what is going on with your girl and she is probably shaking because her body is adjusting to the change in temperature. Try drying her off as much as you can and then make sure she has a place to hide and stuff to cuddle with like bedding or shredded newspaper :)

Shes probably freezing cold, bathing rodents is tricky they need to be dryed completely
