are there rat specific primers available

We have rat/rat cell hybrids which we wish to analyse to see if they are 
true cell hybrids by doing CA repeats on them. But the problem is 
that we do not know of any primers that are specific for rats. we tried 
using a few human primers but got a lot of non specific banding. I looked into 
DNA fingerprinting with random primers but it seems to give a number of 
bands instead of a few specific bands. please let me know if there is 
some other way I could also analyse these cells.
