Re: Urgent advice:( somethings not right following Whispers spay

so sorry to hear this. you gave her the best life she could have had. my Daisy has never had the same bond with any other rat that she had with her sister who died so suddenly. she will get better in time but you really can tell that to them, nothing will replace that special bond they had. Daisy j...

Re: Producing milk but not pregnant is this normal?

Yes we lost Parsnip last Wednesday and Whisper this Wednesday, and really hope we get a break from vet visits for a while now, ...

Re: Urgent advice:( somethings not right following Whispers spay

Thankyou all x :hearts: We got the call just after 2pm and at first thought it was good news, the vet said she had drained fluid from Whispys stomach but then said the fluid wasn't freeflowing and that she had multiple adhesions and extensive abnormal tissue, making her think that her original diagn...

Re: Urgent advice:( somethings not right following Whispers spay

Thanks for the advice Jemma, the vet doesn't think abs will get rid of it if it's an abcess and its already really big, her stomach is so hard and so can't take the risk of it bursting internally so she's going to be opened up and see if anything can be done, i'm just not sure if abcesses can be rem...

Re: Urgent advice:( somethings not right following Whispers spay

Sorry should have mentioned as I'm not sure if it's relevant, Whispy along with every other girl I have from this rescue group have had wound infections/abcesses following surgery. They all eventually healed but i'm not sure if this is going to mean an internal abcess would be more likely even thoug...

Producing milk but not pregnant is this normal?

Yesterday Brown nose and Peachy both went in for lumpectomies, we also noticed a few days ago that one of brown noses nipples were swollen and red so I asked the vet during the pre op consult if it was likely to be another tumour starting, she said it was probably a blockage and gave it a squeeze ex...

Re: Suitable large rat carriers

Thanks Jemma, that sounds ideal actually. I've always been a bit wary of buying cat carriers up til now incase they wern't 100% rat proof and thats why i'd just made do with the Aladino. I ordered the Cabrio yesterday so hopefully it'll be here by Friday. I'll let you know what they make of it when ...
