Re: Freeranging 2 groups at same time

Why have I never thought to do this :roll: I free range in the conservatory 3 groups one after the other. Taking me 3 hours! If I split the room I could get to bed before midnight :)

Re: Cleaning wounds

I like to use Hibiscrub. You can get it from the chemist. I paid £5 for a bottle that will last years. I have got 2 oldies and ever morning you can hear me shout 'Still alive yeay' I am dreading how it will upset all of us when the time comes :( Sending scritches to Cosmo :hearts:

Re: How long to settle after neutering?

My Marley went from a wild chomping, hissing bog brush to a squishy smooth fured cutie in about 4 weeks. I couldn't believe it! :o

Re: Number of rats/ wheels

I have got one wheel to 7 rats and have had 3 in it at one time. My older girl was running backwards :lol: I know if I got another they would still all want to be in the same one. Just like they do with hammocks :roll:

Doxy/Baytril combo?

Sorry if this sounds daft but when it says combo does that mean take them at the same time? Also I was told to give 1/3 of a tablet of Doxy and have read on hear 1/8 to be given. Do you still follow the rule of 0.1ml per 100g 0f body weight for Baytril split into 2 doses when part of a combo? I am p...

Re: Tell me what to do

He is 14 mths old. You have given me a few ideas. I have thought about rescuing some girls and getting them spayed but if surgery went wrong I would feel so guilty. I don't rate the vets round by me much. I didn't know you could keep Bucks with old does. How does that work? Do many people do that? I...

Tell me what to do
