Re: advice needed urgently!!

thankyou for that.. we just gave it to her in a little honey but she wouldn't take it and we had to pretty much force her to have it off us, which she wasn't impressed about :(
We're going to try some chocolate baby food later as she seems to have a taste for her ratty choccie drops :wink:

Re: advice needed urgently!!

the vet has prescribed ronaxan (in tablet form!) and we need to give her 1/16th of a tablet :-?

as we speak we're struggling to get Echo to take it as we've mixed it with a tiny bit of honey.. have you ever had to do this? do you have any suggestions? :roll:

Re: advice for teaching our ratty new things??

We are still working on a cagemate (as our last attempt was foiled :cry: ) The training is coming on leaps and bounds now though our little Echo is now responding to her name well. She understands when we praise her (she gets visably very excited! :D) and knows that if we clap then she is doing some...
