Re: He sneezes all days since months ago. Try to find diagnosis

Hi Rayeon, Welcome to the forum, what a little cutie he is! :D You probably already know this but rats can be sensitive to all sorts of smells, air-fresheners, perfumes etc. etc. and as Cyber Ratty said, they can developed sensitivities to some of the existing things inside their cage too. One of ou...

Re: Zymbal's gland or something else? (pics attached)

Hi deansfreckles, Welcome back to the forum. I've also returned after a very long break (but with a new account as I couldn't find my old one). 15 ratties since your first post, that's really cool. I'm so sorry to read about little Zepher, it's horrible when you take them to the vets over and over, ...

Re: Medicine's

Hey Yorkie, I totally understand your excitement, they're the best! :D You may well already know this but it's all about getting a vet who has experience with rats. If you have ratty friends locally I'd ask them, otherwise if you're happy to say roughly where you live someone here might be able to r...

Re: Help Needed

Hi Jackie, Welcome to the forum! Firstly, you did a really wonderful thing by taking this little guy in, and it's lovely that you bought the biggest cage they had :) Also awesome that it's one of the very few cages you can add to should budget and space allow, if only all cages worked that way!! So ...

When they stop using it. ;)
I am SO glad you said that!! I kept reading stuff about how wheels that were too small would damage their spines so I was really worried that they would carry on using it even if it was too small.

Re: Flying saucers

Hi Yorkie, Welcome to the forum! I have seen a Youtube video of a baby girl ratty using a trixie flying saucer at roughly the speed of light :D It looked very fun! Based on that and how cheap it was I bought my massive boys one to see if they would take to it before investing in a massive expensive ...

New Amputee, a very happy 3-legged boy?!

Hi All, A couple of months ago we took our potentially 2-year old fella to the vets because of a slight limp he'd had for a couple of days. We were hoping it was just a sprain or similar from a tiny fall etc. so when the vet x-rayed him and said that more tests were needed but he suspected a massive...

Hi itsBreeze, welcome to the forum :) I'm really sorry to hear about your little girl. I wanted to let you know that we've just been through something similar with one of our adopted boys who could be about 2 but we have no way to know for sure. He had a really aggressive tumour and we were told he ...

Re: Multiple choking episodes

Hi ScissorCrow, I'm really sorry to hear that that's happening, it's heartbreaking and terrifying to watch every time, even if they clear it a few seconds later a go right back to eating. One of mine is the same. He started doing it around Christmas time, went from once or twice, to once or twice a ...
