Re: Argh! Help! I'm really worried!

I'll check with the vet about payment over the phone! I'll make him an appointment as he did develop his tilt while on antibiotics. Something is definately not right if he's getting worse! I feel so so sorry for the little mite, he has been in the wars recently!! Thanks very much for the advice, esp...

Re: Argh! Help! I'm really worried! AGAIN!!!!

Rick went to the vet on Friday and got an injection of steriods (they didn't tell me what one) and said that the septrin he was on for his foot was the best thing for his ear infection. They said that he might always be a bit tilty but he shouldn't get any worse. He looks worse to me!! When we had a...

I don't know a huge ammount, only what I've seen, but my OHs old girls we're around 2 when they both passed away. Cheech went with an obvious respiritory infection, we rushed her to the vets and she had some injections and a course on antibiotics but died in the night. Chong seemed to get on OK on h...

Re: Argh! Help! I'm really worried!

Yeah, it is banana flavour apparently. The vet said "It'll be no trouble, it tastes nice and they like it. Just pop it in his mouth and squeeze" HA! YEAH! RIGHT!

The people at Tesco am gonna think I'm a nutter with my random ratty shopping :lol:

Re: Argh! Help! I'm really worried! Update + pic

I think he may be a bit tilting...had a look at him on the bed. So it's a nice trip to vets tomorrow.

He is already on Septrin for his poor foot.

Here's a pic of what he was doing last night

How long do antibiotics take to work?

Re: Argh! Help! I'm really worried!

Had a quick look around the net for head tilt symptoms, its not awfully helpful!!! He doesn't seem to be doing it all the time, it was just while he was out of his cage. He's not going round in circles or anything and was pottering about quite normally this morning. OH had him out before bedtime and...

Argh! Help! I'm really worried!

I'm probaby boring the bums off everyone with the story of Rick! I got him out for a good cuddle today and he seemed rather unsteady on his feet. He kept jerking his head about and shook his head a couple of times, bit like cats do when they get mites in their ears. I've never seen him do it before ...

Ricks Poorly Foot: Update + Any Tips??

Hi all, I posted about one of my boys, Rick, having a poorly foot yesterday...we took him to the vets, with Vince for company, and the vet wasn't sure why his foot was so swollen. She couldn't feel a break so thinks the cut must be infected so we've got some antibiotics for him. Rick is in the spare...

Re: YAAAAARGH! Barty took a fall

Bless Barty!

One of my boys has hurt his foot and is going to the vets tonight! It looks really swolen so I think is best to have him looked at!! :)

I'm glad Barty is feeling better!!
