Re: Advice Needed Respy Rats

To be utterly honest if it seems to be "Spreading" then i would get to the vets sooner rather than later. There are Mixed oppinions of Baytril use in rats under 12 weeks regarding stunting of development but there are other antibiotics that can be perscribed. I have two baby rats (under 5 months) th...

Re: I honestly don't know whats wrong with my boy.

If you feel it is likely to be a stroke its really worth going to the vet and requestiong a shot of Dex, it can work wonders in strokes and ive had several come back from near paralysis and go on to live happily for between 2-6 months dependant on the rat :)

Re: Torn Rectum (graphic description and pics)

LOLOL yes indeed! After all he knows waht it feels like! Not sure if its normal but weirdly HE was the one putting the other babyrats on their backs (the Old Boys pretty much ignored them and the "Teenage Ratties" kinda just gave them warning looks)... i have 5 Old boys in there between 2 and 3 year...

Re: The risks of surgeries; an eye opener

I'm so sorry :(

I have been so overprotective over surgery since one of my rescue lads Dexter had a massive heart attack after Castration, like your baby during clean up..

It can happen and it is devestating, my thoughts are with you.

Re: Baytril rat

The reason people suggest doing baytril twice daily is due to how rats metabolise, it is more effective in two doses.

As for amounts, how much does your little one weigh? Baytril dose is worked out by the rats weight so if you give us the weight we will know better to work out the dosage :D

Re: Torn Rectum (graphic description and pics)

Hey everyone :) Thank you all so much for the kind words and thoughts for Harry - he had his final checkup today and the last couple of stitches that hadn't come away by themselves snipped. Poor boy had the indignity of a thermometer being poked up his new bum to check the passage was "open" enough ...
