Re: PEW

Thankyou, so, if i was to introduce another rattie to them is there a chance they could fight with him or leave him out on the basis that he isn't related, or would that not come into it?

PEW

Does anyone know if a black self and a PEW could be brothers? I have 2 black selfs and 1 PEW from resuce and am just intrigued to know if my PEW is related to my black boys. I dont know anything about rattie genetics.

Re: Rescue Recommendations?

Also! I got a single boy from the york RSPCA a few years ago and had him neautered to live with girls. He recovered from the op very quickly and had a long happy life with my girls, so i say go for it :D

Re: Rescue Recommendations?

As far as I know the RSPCA York currently has 2 single males in so to take one of those on to neuter wouldn't be selfish reasons
Do you have any more information about these boys? i live near york and I'm on the look out for a single boy!!

If the tumour is starting to ulcerate (cause scabs/sores on the skin) then it means it's growing faster/more than the skin can stretch. Unfortunately the most likely thing is that it will grow more and burst out of the skin, not a very nice thing to happen to the ratty. Is she totally healthy other...

yes, its probably 0.3ml, it comes up to the 30 mark on the syringe, its a bit comfussing. he weighs just under 600 grams, so according to the information here, he should get twice this amount, and he should probably be on the course for longer, do you think it would be a good idea to get his dose in...

thanks for replying, he has already had an anti-inflammatory, but hes still on the same amount of baytril, i think, and only once a day, its 30ml a day, is this high enough? when he gave us the baytril he said there were no other antibiotics suitable for rats. hes only been given 5 dose's, do you th...

raah, this just gets worse!

i posted a few days ago about mongo having an abcess, the vet drained it and he's been on baytril for 4 days, but now his leg, on the same side as the abcess, has swollen up and he can hardly walk, the vet says its probably that the abcess has caused the arteries to be squashed so blood cannot get o...

i once got some hamsteroids from my sister coz her hamster wouldn't eat them, and i was a bit reluctant to give them to my ratties coz they have so much food colouring in, but mongo stole 1 in the end anyway and he was totally fine.. no side affects! so i doubt it would be them.
