What bedding does everyone use because as it goes my boys tend to smell. My girls on the other hand never really smell, My boys are better at using there litter tray but always seem to smell like pee. It's even hard work getting the smell off them with baths. The cages are always cleaned and anythin...

If you go to any shows you can usually get someone to do them for you. Lew is the fastest claw-clipper I've seen! If not, your vet will do it at a cost, with you holding it. However, there is a good thread on here on cutting claws when alone, and a good video by Acrorat Jules. Wish me luck, or perh...

Re: Help with clipping claws..Rat just got stuck! pic

Cutting nails can be scary so I dont blame you for avoiding it but if they are getting stuck on things then its gotta be done. Do you have someone that can help hold them while you cut? I usually have my OH wrap them in a towel so their face is covered and quickly snip them with a human Nail clippe...

Re: Concerns about elderly girl

It sounds like you have a good vet which helps when our rats get elderly. I got an older female to keep my one remaining elderly female company a few months back, she has dragged her legs the whole time I have had her the only thing I have noticed is you have to watch her nails don't get caught as t...

Re: Maybe being a bit dopey here but going to ask anyway!!

I treated her and all her cage mates roughly a month ago.... I did take her to the Vet but the lady I use to see had left and the person I saw just looked at me like I was mad bringing in a Rat. Didn't look at her but did give me XENO 50 and said I should treat all the Rats just incase.... Taking Mi...
