Re: Feeling awful :(

Thank you all so much, it really makes me feel a lot better to know I've done the right thing :hearts: She's really perked up over the last few hours and has even been eating, and gave me kisses so I know I've been forgiven :love: I really hopes she gets better asap, I hate seeing my babies sick :(

Feeling awful :(

I had to take Lily to the vet today as she's really very unwell, and what happened there was horrid. She's lethargic and unresponsive, and clearly in a lot of pain, so the vet and I both wanted to get some painkillers into her but she won't take anything. So the vet decided it'd be best to just inje...

Re: Red urine

It is most likely blood causing the red, but you probably guessed that already :wink: It could be just an infection, but you need to consider the possibility of pyometra, because that is fatal if untreated. Just have a look at these articles to see if she's got any of the other symtoms just in case;...

Re: Urgent - sick rat

Thank you both for replying, really appreciated :) I've given her some pain relief, and she's been down my top for the past hour to keep her warm. She doesn't want to move much and is very slow. I managed to give her some baby custard so hopefully that'll perk her up a little. I phoned the emergency...

Re: Urgent - sick rat

Can someone please help me? I really don't know what to do, whether it'll pass or if I need to call the vet.

Urgent - sick rat

Just went to take my girls out and Lily wouldn't come out of her box. She even refused treats, so I pulled her out and she's got porphyrin around her nose and stains on her neck. She's side-sucking (not badly, but still quite noticeable), she's fluffed up and bruxxing/chattering. She was a little qu...

I can't view Rat-Related Chitchat, amongst other things, as I'm getting that too.

Lol hopefully it works, some websites are really sensitive and if you're right on the pixel limit they won't accept it :roll:

Re: Avatar - What am I doing wrong?

Maybe try downsizing it to 119 instead of 120, in case it is sensitive. If that doesn't work, try Photobucket :)

Re: Nail clipping!!!!

I haven't had to do it yet because normally they manage to keep them down themselves but last few days one of my girls has gotten them quite long so I'll need to do it too... dreading it! I can imagine that you'd probably need two people to do it. Also, have some styptic powder (spelling?) on hand t...
