Re: Substrate and bedding recommendations

Welcome!

I am addicted to aubiose. It is reasonably priced and goes a long way. It's designed for horses but fantastic for rats.

On second opinion a decent vet confirmed pyo and took her for an e-spay. Sadly whilst she was under a large abdominal mass was found which was not removable. Her...

Re: Help/Advice -large groinal swelling on unspayed doe.Vet

It has been suggested by a very rat savy friend that it may be she has a uterine tumor which is just coming to light, we are going to try to get her in before friday. On a plus point ab's could get her stronger for surgery but then more time could mean her being to weak for surgery. Bangs head on wall

Re: Urgent - Advice needed ASAP please for a friend.

Thank you all,

She has been to the vet and the poorly boy is hanging in there, all rats are on AB's.

So far she has not said anyone else is sick.

Poor girl is in pieces.

Re: Amoxicillin used with Baytril?

I think it may well have been choking as he has not had a repeat episode.. I didn't see him eating but then I looked up because I noticed his movements.

No fluid or mucus obvious but maybe he had something go down the wrong way bless him...

He's doing well today though...
