Re: 3 adult unsocialised males, North East

UPDATE Unfortunately, one of the hooded boys passed over the rainbow bridge yesterday evening :cry: The lady caring for them said that he was absolutely fine about an hour earlier, active and not showing any sign of illness but she found him dead when she went back in. We are thinking it was either ...

Re: Cozy Pet Cage

I have had multiple cages over the years and sometimes it can be really difficult to find a corner toilet that will attach properly, especially if you have rats that enjoy furniture moving :lol: There are some toilets out there that have plastic threads that stick between the bars and then a plastic...

Re: Rat's swolllen front paws!

Hello, welcome to FR and the World of rats!

Senior aid and other vitamins

I started giving Senior Aid today as two of my three bucks are now starting with HLD, one of them seems to be progressing rather quickly :( On the bottle it says that it also contains “a full compliment of vitamins and minerals”, but it doesn’t say which ones. As it is fed on a daily basis does this...

Re: HELP! Something stuck in throat?

That is great news! Poor little girl, she must be exhausted, as must you! It does sound like she has had a nasty blockage and has managed to clear it, maybe overnight as you said when they took her off of oxygen yesterday she started stretching and gagging again. Fingers crossed the course of ABs th...

Re: HELP! Something stuck in throat?

Bringing back some horrible memories reading this as this happened to one of my boys (not as long-lasting) just over a week ago! Exactly the same symptoms with the drooling, gagging, squeaking and laboured breathing and he was given antibiotics and painkillers/anti-inflammatories, again the vet and ...

Re: Can't get my boy to take medicine... Help

Yoghurt can be a good cunning disguise as well, you could try a strong flavoured one like toffee or caramel to mask the taste. Good luck :luck:

Re: 2 y/o buck drooling and lethargic

Hi Doug, sorry for my delayed response! Frank is doing REALLY well, he has made a full recovery and is not showing any sign of further complications (touch wood). He had his last dose of baytril last night. Thank you so much for all of your advice. I don't know exactly how long he had been strugglin...

Re: 2 y/o buck drooling and lethargic

Hi Cazza, thank you very much for the your early response! Frank is like a different rat this morning! I went in first thing to find him in one of the very top hammocks. He looks so much brighter and his neck is now bone dry. He still isn’t himself and doesn’t seem to have much energy but after what...

2 y/o buck drooling and lethargic

Hi all, I have been out for most of the day and got back in around 21:45 to find one of my 27 month old boys very sick. He didn't come running to greet me with the others like he normally does so I went looking for him. I found him in an igloo on the ground floor, face bright red with porphyrin, sit...
