Re: Advice regarding mammary tumour on 2 year old female

I did some research on here when one of my rats developed a lump and found that people had opted for Galastop rather than surgery. I spoke to my vet and he had recently read a paper on Galastop and he was quite happy to prescribe it.

Re: Advice regarding mammary tumour on 2 year old female

Have you tried galastop, to see if it slows/stops the tumour growth? It is expensive, but cheaper than an op. Lynne on here has used it with great success. Hi, I have used Galastop quite a few times for my ratties. My last girl who had a mammory tumour was on it for about a year and it did slow the...

Re: RatOutofHell Rescue taking a break

Sorry to hear this Jackie, I have had four lovely ratties from you in the past and they have been fantastic. We adopted Amber and Rosie from you at Alijanes infamous tea party where nearly everyone went home with more than they came with :D and then we adopted Blossom and Ruby from you about a year ...

Re: Are most male rats lazy?

My neutered boy Ollie is quite lazy, he is quite happy to lay in his hammock and let me hand feed him rather than going to get food himself with the girls :roll:

Re: Lumpy Dilemma

Have you thought of asking your vet for Galastop, it can help reduce lumps or in some cases they can disappear altogether. I have used Galastop for when my does have had lumps and have good results, it saves putting them through surgery. :)

Re: When to go back into cage

I agree with Mary - post-castraton, if his normal cage for now is without friends, I would go back asap. Offer a floor-style bed if you're worried, but I wouldn't bother too much because as said, the wound isn't in a location where climbing will interfere with healing. Thank you acapae_wolf. Puttin...
