Re: Urgent home needed for single buck kitten, Middlesboroug

Don't all jump in at once. :lol: Good job he's being fostered and may have a forever home. If anybody has a rat cage they don't use anymore in the local area, that would be really helpful. Collected him today and he's in an awful hamster cage. He also has a deformed front leg and is snuffly, althoug...

Re: Urgent home needed for single buck kitten, Middlesboroug

Update: Apparently he doesn't like being picked up but is happy to sit on your shoulder and have nose rubs.

Re: Humming?

This sounds like what some of my girls do sometimes - I describe it as a very low buzz, for some reason it's always reminded me of one of the lightsaber noises :lol: I can't be more helpful though as most people I've asked don't get what I'm talking about! Jemma, next time you're here I'll try to r...

Re: Humming?

It's definitely not the high pitched noises they make. I hve a bat detector and have heard Rohan making a lot of chittering and chattering noises, especially when I scritch his tummy. This noise is a very low pitched and quite hum. I have tried to record it but my mic won't pick it up. :roll: Thank ...

Humming?

I got my "new" boys in January and they both make the strangest humming sound. This is not respiratory as one does have problems and this noise is completely separate to the squeaky breathing noises and sneezes he makes (he is on treatment for it). His brother has always made this humming noise as w...

Re: Ranaxon dosage question

If he's not hooty he doesn't really need it imo, I use it to get f10 right into their lungs when they sound gungy. Is it the noise that frightens him? I use they're normal carrier in a bag for life with the mouthpiece and a towel over the top and they usually go to sleep! Glad Roac is sounding bett...

Re: Ranaxon dosage question

I love hearing what other people's ratties like. I'm glad Roac seems normal with him being a picky little sod. He does seem better since I've been giving him his proper dose. As for nebulising; I gave up with that because he got so stressed out with it. My vets have told me to persist but I do reall...

Re: Ranaxon dosage question

I used to give him it on bread but it was so much of faff and the powder didn't always stick right to it..plus when I was watching him eat it, he would knock off a lot of the powder so this is why I decided to switch. Tonight we established he hates fruit yoghurt. :roll: I've never had such a fussy ...

Re: Ranaxon dosage question

Thank you! I think I have found the problem. I tried him with some quark earlier which he went mad for...until he realised it was on a spoon, then he refused to touch it. :? When I put the quark on some popcorn he licked it all off...medication and all. He's a funny bugger! I will try the soya yoghu...

Re: Ranaxon dosage question

Thank you. I have tried separating it and storing it but I find I end up with powder stuck to the foil packet and I feel like I'm wasting the majority of it. If this works for you then I will try this. I used a card to split the tablet after breaking it up inside it's packet with a rolling pin. :lol...

Ranaxon dosage question

Hi. I am having a very hard time accurately dosing my rat with ronaxan. How does everybody else do it? I need to give him a 10th of a tablet twice and day and this is physically impossible to do accurately. I am concerned that me not giving him a correct dose everyday is causing his resp problems to...

Re: Wher to go now with respy rat?

I agree, I find ronaxan works best in combination with baytril, I'm not 100% sure why but I think together they cover more of the potential bugs causing the issue. If you do go for this, be aware that the two medicines need to be given at least an hour apart as they basically cancelled each other o...

Re: Wher to go now with respy rat?

He seems to have good and bad days. I have been putting tubs of water and a damp towel on the radiator so that the air is as moist as possible. I had him out yesterday and although he was a little noisy, he was nowhere near as bad as the day before. He was bouncing about like a moron and fighting wi...
