Re: Copy of X-ray?

Wonderful! :D

Some vets already use digitalised xrays, pretty sure those images can just be forwarded. :) Physical xrays are a bit harder to copy.

Re: Euthanasia Methods (ETA at the vets)

I've had several rats take over 20mins for the heart to stop if the injection is just into the abdomen. One did start to come round to and had to have more sevoflo. When that happens usually the injection did not go correctly and probably went somewhere else like in the abdominal fat or intestines....

Re: Euthanasia Methods

That doesn't sound very nice indeed. My vets even take time for me despite having a lot of rats and thus putting one to sleep pretty often, even when I come after closing hours for an emergency euth they take their time with me and are very nice. For us owners a large part about euthanisation feelin...

Re: Worried about rats smelling

Honestly if substrate is too pricey for you, you might want to think again about getting rats as pets. They are relatively cheap to keep up until the point you need to go to the vet with them..

Re: Maternal Aggression... Can it be "bred out" of a line?

Maternal agression doesn't have anything to do with how tame they are. Also naturally tame babies will still be more tame than their less-tame siblings after socialising, not socialising to see "the true temperament" is not necessary imo and useless when trying to select away from maternal agression...

Re: Rats not eating diabetes mix

Which is why I'm baffled! I should probably ask how much food they give each day. The diabetic rat is also overweight so it wouldn't surprise me they're a little easy with feeding. :P

Re: Rats not eating diabetes mix

They also get fresh veggies and such regularly. The owner told me they're not eating it.

Rats not eating diabetes mix

Hello! One of the rats I have bred and has been pet homed has been diagnosed with diabetes. I noticed The Scuttling Gourmet had a recipe for diabetic rats, so I've made the mix for the owners of the rat and they were eating it fine. However they recently stopped eating the seeds and now they stopped...

Volume to weight

I'm busy making a new Shunamite-type mix and I've been wondering if anyone happens to know the approximate volume to weight ratio for the most common ingredients, or a trick to know before ordering the ingredients? I want to measure the weight of a cup/scoop of each ingredient once I get them, but I...

What cyber ratty said. :) I'm both on the NFRS forum and in the Serious rats Facebook group and finding them really helpful, even though I'm from the Netherlands. ;)

Doesn't the American Fancy Rat and Mouse Association have a forum or something? Or some other American rat club?

Re: Rex acts as recessive?

Looks like some type of fuzz. Apparently there are several different fuzz/hairless genes around with different degrees of baldness.

Don't argue with people on Facebook. Not because they right, of course they aren't in the slightest. :lol: It's just a battle you won't win. Facebook groups, ahhh. :lol: :sick:

Re: Bulletin about FR on Social Media

I own a small Dutch rat forum and also have a Facebook page to promote it. I really don't use it enough so it's not very active, but I try to make posts pointing out topical things on the forum with a link to it and occasionally share cute rat stuff. Past few weeks I've promoted the photo competitio...
