Re: question about male rat neutering

Its interesting to hear ppl have noticed a change in activity between nutted boys and de-nutted boys, I dont see any change in my denutted boys, they are all lazy little so & so's! Also Most of my girls are pingy like they have little springs attached to their feet, but they are all Mummy's girl...

Re: its been a bad few months (seriously ill rat)

Thanks for all the kind words. I miss my babies. To lose 4 in 2 months has been really heartbreaking. I love my babies so much, but i've decided I'm not getting any more. I am going to give the 11 I have left a good life with love and cuddles, but I cant cope with losing anymore. :(

Re: its been a bad few months (seriously ill rat)

My baby Shade died last night. I thought she was looking a bit better as she was eating and drinking, and licking my fingers, then I went to check on her after dinner, and she had passed on. :cry:

Re: destructive rats

They're not even eating their way through the corners of the skirting board, they are nibbling random sections... my OH is stressing that if the landlord comes over he might not let us stay any longer than 6 months if the rats are eating their way through the 3 bedroom.... I Cant figure out why they...

Re: my poor boy

They shouldn't do ... I don't think you have anything to lose by treating for infection anyway ... I would consider using Baytril and Clavaseptin in combination though, because if it is infection, that will give him a better chance of fighting it off ... and good luck! Thanks for the advise, I am n...

Re: my poor boy

When Vinnie's brother Howie fell ill, I saw three different vets with him as I was back and forth so often, they all said it was a neurological disease, obviously there is no way to tell it was a PT without an autopsy, but all 3 vets diagnosed him as having a suspected PT. Yeah it is rare to have a ...

Re: my poor boy

Yeah I said to my vet that i was hoping it is an ear infections as it came on so quickly... but she checked both his ears, eyes, heartbeat etc, and couldnt find anything else that would suggest its something that might be curable with some hardcore anti-bugs. She said because its only mild at the mo...

my poor boy

My Poor gorgeous boy Vinnie has got the start of a PT coming on. I noticed his head was slightly dipped to the right side, took him to see my vet, she gave him a thorough check over, and could only come up with the diagnosis of a PT, which she was also very sad about for me, as I lost his brother to...
