Hello, wild rat can cause weils disease, rat bite fever, (even rabies - but not seen in Indian contest), these disease can be recognized, or chances of these disease can be ruled out easily if you visit doctor at the earliest, if the disease is suspected can be treated easily in early stages. So please visit a general physician at the earliest.
