Rolling lump under skin

My other half just found a lump on one of our girls...

Shes 18 months old and on baytril for a respitory infection..

The lump is about as big as a grape maybe a little bit smaller, its under my left armpit...its kind of sagging down......its NOT attached to the skin...

Can someone help...

Re: Rat's eye is full of blood!

i really think you need to take her to the vet soon.... I wouldnt give her human eyedrops as you cant be sure whats in them and that it wont hurt her eye...

Also you can give her some children ibuprofen...the liquid one. O.1ml per 100g

Re: URGENT, need advice before vets trip this am! Very respy boy

if his back is allready bad due to the injection, just ask for baytril oraly, so you can give it him daily.... I would advise againt another injection.

Re: How much sneezing is normal?

i pay 9 quid per rat that gets seen, so 12 quid seems fine to me, it is costly though

It may be that they will send you another out for free if you email and explain the problems. I use Finacard and my batch has no dust at all. Hes a very very nice man and very reasonable.

Re: Dumbo's and Fancys

I put vasaline on them and small amount of vicks. In the end we had to seperate Dextor, You shouldnt put viks on any rat as it will hurt their lungs, rats have very sensitive respitory system and anything slightly perfumed etc will make them ill. If you need somthing safe to put on them to try bond...
