Re: Baby rat been bitten

Thanks for the replies ErnieG! :). I think I'll hold off introductions tonight for the baby that has been bitten. I might put the other baby with Ronnie for a short while tonight before I go to bed. Hopefully the one that has been bitten won't now be more nervous of Ronnie. Do you think there is any...

Re: Baby rat been bitten

I'm unsure of Ronnie's actual age as he was a rescue. I've had him about 13/14 months now, so I think he will be at least 17/18 months old. The new babies I got together; one is just over 6 weeks old and the other a week or so older. Both babies are fine together - play fighting, grooming eachother ...

Re: Baby rat been bitten

Would it be wise to leave both babies separate at least overnight? They are always flipping eachother over and pouncing on eachother. The one that has been bitten is slightly younger and smaller too, so I dont want him beginning to heal and then the rough play opening it up. Is it okay to keep intro...

Baby rat been bitten

I've been introducing two baby rats to ronnie. All has been going fine, no signs of aggression from Ronnie at all - he has been chilling out washing himself right next to them. One of the babies squeaked and I think Ronnie got a shock and nipped him. The wound is on his back. It doesn't seem to be b...

Could this be lymphoma?

A month or so ago now Oy had surgery to remove a lump on his right side that had ulcerated, around the area of his ribs. He was fine after the surgery and then a few weeks afterwards was showing signs of pain, so one of the suture knots that was quite tight and had not dissolved was cut off. By then...

Re: Dermisol for bumblefoot?

Thanks for the reply worthysmum. Hopefully I can manage to get Ronnie's under control - they don't seem too bad at the moment. They are on both hocks though, but he still jumps around like a nutter lol. I'll give the honey a go if I don't find the Dermisol to be helping. I hope Murphy keeps improvin...

Dermisol for bumblefoot?

Has anyone used dermisol for bumblefoot? If you have, any stories about the outcome? He's also on Baytril anyway as he's a bit snuffly.

Baytril 10% dosage?

Does anyone know the recommended dosage for 10% concentration Baytril? I've been reading articles and just getting myself confused :lol:. If anyone could give an example based on a certain weight that'd be ideal! Thanks :)

[Update - RIP Gizmo] Re: Head shaking and strange paws?

Gizmo passed away 22nd October, on the night, about 1/2 an hour after I returned from going to my parents house after work. My boyfriend let me know he really wasn't well and kept him on his knee for hours until I got home, so he wasn't alone. It's strange that very soon after I got home and took hi...

Head shaking and strange paws?

Gizmo is about 26 months old now. His back legs aren't as good as they used to be - he can still use them reasonably well but most of the time can no longer reach his ears to clean them. I have taken a little wax out every so often and regularly scratch his ears for him. Recently he has been shaking...

Re: Bumblefoot treatment?

Thanks for the replies :) Does anyone know if I need to dilute the hibiscrub and if so, by how much? I've heard it tends to work quite well in the early stages of bumblefoot and I've just managed to get some free from someone that works in theatre. If it doesn't seem to help I'll then try the Purple...

Re: Bumblefoot treatment?

Right - I now have some hibiscrub. The boyfriend's Mam works in theatre so brought me some back today :) Do I need to dilute it?
