Re: Emergency help! Possible ZGT?

Can't really help much but I know from reading the rat guide earlier that it does start as a swelling near the ear on the side of the face/head. Sending healing vibes to your baby. I was looking for ear polyps on that site as Revel's just been diagnosed with one in her ear this morning (see "death s...

Re: Death sentence!! :(((

Thank you for everyones replies. There has been no blood since Monday night, so just trying to stay positive for now. She's still got a little sprint in her step, so that's a good sign. She seems happy enough. She's got a checkup next week with the other vet so I'll see what his views are on the sit...

Re: Death sentence!! :(((

Thank you Vicster2208. You don't sound heartless at all I know exactly what you mean and that's the way I'm thinking too. I've stated mourning already, just can't stop crying every time I think about it. I went into work today and ended up coming straight home again. I'm sorry to hear about your gir...

Death sentence!! :(((

Well, it's not good news I'm afraid. After all that Revel has been through, she has been a proper little trooper and fought with all her strength. Unfortunately this time she is fighting something that is going to beat her sooner rather than later. I'm trying really hard not to sound as upset as I f...

Re: Blood in ear!

It's Revel that's got the blood in her ear. Her claws have never been that sharp, but I'm hoping that's all it is. She was having a little scratch of it earlier. She's shaking her head. She's not tilty at least and there isn't any other smell than her usual smell. Do you think I should leave the med...

Blood in ear!

Not having a good week!! Was feeding Revel her yohurt this morning and noticed reddish staining on her fur just in front of her ear. On closer inspection I noticed that there was dried blood inside her ear and what looks like a pool of blood deep in her ear canal. I got some pics but it's not easy t...

Re: I don't know how to help them..

Sorry to say this but if you really cared what happened to this animal you would be doing something. I have heard about my parents neighbour throwing boiling water over cats and my mum says she wouldn't report her and I said sorry but if I ever witness her doing it I wouldn't hesitate to report her....

Play hard at the bridge Biggs :rainbow:

Don't beat yourself up you gave him the best possible care you could and it sounds like he knew that and loved you back. It's so hard when our furry friends leave us.

Advice on Majeeka's meds

Please can someone help me here? Majeeka developed a wheeze on Monday, took her to vet on Wednesday she wasn't wheezy but still a bit squeaky. As she seemed to be kicking it herself he decided not to give me meds for her. I got mysef really worked up about the whole situation the other night and dec...

Re: bath a rat

I tried to get my 2 used to being bathed from a young age, but they still hate it. Not done it for a while and they are both rather grubby but don't want to stress Revel out due to respiratory issues. Might do them this weekend or try the cotton wool idea.

Re: Wild Garlic

What does it look like? I know what it smells like as I know an area where it groes and it's really strong smelling when driving through that area. If I knew what it looked like then I could go pick some.

Re: Eating paper :|

Revel eats paper quite a lot, it's never done her any harm. I've been told that she won't be swallowing it but I know she does as I've watched her. I must try to remember to ask the vet tomorrow, I forgot last time.

Re: Cheeping Noises?

Yes, you should. One of my girls often sound like that she was on Baytril and now the other one has started wheezing so back to the vet on Wednesday for us. :luck:
