Injured Frozen Feeder

I’m unsure if this is appropriate to ask here but the feeder rat fluff I got has scabs or scab like wounds all over its body, I’ll provide pictures on request but is this safe to feed to my boa?

Based on the description it can be several things.

  1. Bites from older rats

  2. Mites

  3. Allergic reaction which is usually to protein

Considering the age you can eliminate #3, I would say 1 or 2 which in either can be fed off.
