SDAV raises its ugly head again :(

Post by stormsmuggler » Mon Mar 07, 2011 9:39 pm

I thought I'd better let you all know that it looks like i have an outbreak of SDAV here in Cornwall :( I lost a rat on Saturday morning, Europa, an old man who other than HLD had no symptoms, he appeared to go peacefully in his little nest at the bottom of the cage and I put it down to just being his time :dumbohalo:
On Sunday night I lost 3 boys, 16 month old brothers, they didn't want to come out for free range at 7pm just ambled back of to the cage, but seemed fine, just lazy boys, when I went to feed and re fresh water them at bedtime 10pm, they had all past. This morning I woke to find 3 of my girls in severe respiritory distress and rushed up to the vet, where I didn't get a definate diagnosis of what could be the cause but they all had Baytril and steroid injections. Tonight the girls are breathing better although Bella is very porphy around the nose and eyes. Everyone has been put on baytril and septrin for the ones under 6 months for the next fortnight/3 weeks and I'm putting myself on lock down (no Clevedon show for me) no visits from rattie friends and no rehoming or rescuing for a while. Tonight while medicating and checking everyone over, I discovered lumps on Balinors throat but the rest all seem fine, it is this neck swelling that has prompted me to alert everyone on forum, despite losing the 3 boys on Sunday, I was aware that they all have a genetic weak heart inherited from their mum who passed at 5 months old and knew that if they ever caught anything it would probably be fatal.

Thanks guys, my biggest worry is that I went to Spavos on Sunday morning to see Harry and his 4 wives and their 35 babies :cry: and I won't be able to help with the rehoming and transport for him now. Praying that I haven't taken it over there

Oh no Raz - I didn't want to read and run - sending my best wishes to everyone @ Hotel Raz (and @ Amzy's too). You've both done so much to help ratties and you don't deserve this at all :(
