My rat sneezes like a cold that doesn't go away.

Post by iadorerats » Fri Aug 20, 2010 4:23 pm

Pip, my doe is a faun colour fancy rat, where ever I take her she will do random sneezes. I wouldn't say in sequence but she will sneeze when she is running some where or if she's sat on my shoulder, in her cage etc... Does anyone know what's happening or having the same problem, even a bit of advice? She is about 2 years old-ish :teen:

Thanks very much Iadorerats :luck:

Are there any other symptoms, like snuffles or 'wet' sneezes? I only ask because one of my girls, Pretzel also randomly sneezes genernally often but with 15/30 minutes in between sometimes more. However Im not willing to put her on antibiotics when there are no other symptoms and she seems healthy enough! :D

Of course, when in doubt go to the vet! :luck:

I have a sneezy boy, he has been the same ever since we got him and a check at the vets found no signs of infection. i wouldnt worry too much if he has no symptoms that make you think he is unwell.

Yes, it just seems like a cold, that's reassuring she doesn't seem unwell and the same breaks, just random.

Thanks for your support iadorerats :luck:
