Re: Califlower leaves?

Thanks : ) I can easily give them raw too, just thought it might be better cooked is all. So it's a one of those eat raw or very slow cooked things then?

Re: Is this wheel big enough?

Hmm, it's how I feared : / I thought they'd be too small. I'm not very good at inagining these kinda things so I thought they'd be bigger than they are. Has anyone actually seen either the SS or the WW wheels anywhere recently? Everyone says their out of stock or the whole section where they used to...

Califlower leaves?

Are they edible? To humans, but more to the point can I give them to my girls (rats and hams)? I'd steam them like I do all their veg, so they wouldn't be raw. It just seems a waste to throw them away is all and I don't have a compost bin at the minuet.

Is this wheel big enough?

So I've just recieved two of these wheels: http://www.zooplus.co.uk/shop/small_pets/accessories/exercise_wheels/174195 I suppose I imagined them to be a bit bigger that they are, which is not say they aren't big! Are they big enough for my girlies? I'm not sure, can't make my mind up if they are or ...

Re: Playpen

Mines two foot high to, but I've had to reinforce it by building an overhang pointing to the inside. This works, although it's not very pretty! I use Correx too.

Re: New rat owner resp problem advice

I would recomend asking to have him put on something called Baytril. It's what's is mainly used for this problem. And it often works well. He would be best to be put on a two week course, so make sure your given enough for that. Rats are very prone to resp problems, it might be the stress of the mov...

Re: How can you tell if a rat is blind/deaf

Dreamer, a one of my girls, was almost blind. She had very light pink eyes. She used to use her whiskers to find her way arond, but she could do it fine. When I first got her it took her a long while to remember where everything was in the cage and outside it too, and I had to be carful where I plac...

Re: 30 Gallon Tank

I would never put rats into a tank, not even for a short while. It's too risky for their health. If you can't put them in the main cage then I'd say get another one for them till they can go in.

Re: big cage recommendations?

Also there's the Tower, which I have. It's huge (about five foot high, maybe nearly two and a half foot wide and just under a foot and a half deep), with two huge doors, it's a doddle to clean and it's as solid as you like too.

...But I would say those things 'cause I love mine! X )

Re: Unsure. Advice please, Not sure the best way to add Friends

Your girl won't have asthma, she'll have a resp problem. Rats are very prone to these kind of problems and the normal coarse of action is to have them put on a coarse of antibiotics called Baytril. So when you take Millie to the vets ask to have her put on that for at least a couple of weeks. It tas...
