Poorly 14 week old rat

Hi, I have a poorly 14 week old rat. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that his breathing was laboured and he was making a clicking noise. He was also off his food and hunched up in the corner of the cage. I immediately took him to the vet who said that he possibly has the early stages of bronchitis. ...

Hi all, I have completely fallen in love with a little 8 week old male rat that needs rehoming. I currently have two male rats who are about 18 months old. I got them together so have been with one another since they were young. They have the odd tumble with one another but it has never gone too far...

Sudden change in behaviour

Hi all, I have had my gorgeous male rats (Pixi & Jasper) for about 4 weeks now and everything has been great. They both came as a pair in the sense that they were snuggled up together when I viewed them and as such decided to keep them together. Jasper is about 8 months old & Pixi is about 1 year. T...
