Disease-free rats? Are SPF lab rats desirable as pets? (992 words)
The case with rats and respiratory disease is similar: as virtually all rats (in fact all pet, wild and lab except for those SPF lab specimens delivered by C-section) carry respiratory infections in much the same way as we carry the common cold.
Even if every rat in the pet population was SPF we would still have the worry of infection through wild rats, who, because the pertinent respiratory disease causing pathogens are airborne (aka aerosol infections), a wild rat passing beneath your floorboards, or past an open window could, at least in theory, infect a pet rat.
As virtually all rats are destroyed at the end of an experiment -- often at only a few months of age, little care is put into deliberately breeding long-lived or particularly healthy lab rats, although some specific experiments for longevity are documented.
