Re: Tilty older lady

hi, thanks for replies
couldn't see my vet early on and it's since been a bit of a crazy week with one thing or another so have decided to postpone vet trip for now.. she has settled in very well and seems happy enough, so being non-urgent, I'd rather wait and see my preferred vet.
thanks again xx

Re: Tilty older lady

Just to add, she has gotten back to me and she treated baytril but no steroid.. she also said that the tilt was caused by a fall, that her 'brother' had knocked her off the cage?? could the fall just be coincidence? why would you need abs if it was a fall? hmmmm.. will chat it out with my vet 2mor n...

Tilty older lady

Hi there I picked up my 'old man' rat yesterday, and she was missing those vital and rather obvious parts that would have made her a boy! :roll: She is rather tilty, the woman has said that she was treated 6 months ago but won't elaborate on what the treatment was... I am unsure really what to think...

Re: Respiratory medication advice needed!

If the doxy worked last time I would probably try that again; if there's no improvement within the week ask for baytril to use in combination too. That may give your usual vet time to get back if you need to go with the combi and should make it easier for the other vet as it's the last thing prescri...

Re: Neuter costs?

I'm paying £70 for a female neuter with an experienced vet. I think I'd avoid the really cheap vets, as the saying goes you get what you pay for. A decent anaesthetic regime, incubator for recovery and pain relief cost money. xx Would definitely have to disagree with this; I have a great vet who is...

Re: Vaginal bleeding

is it likely it's vaginal bleeding if she's been spayed? could it be in her urine, so possible uti? or a wound of some sort? how is she in herself? think a vet trip is probably in order.. hope everything's ok xx

Re: Chewing stitches and scar

rats heal remarkably quickly so fingers crossed it will knit again while it's taped up.. just see how it is in the morning and take it from there; some vets open on a sunday anyway so you may be able to see someone if you need to.. try not to panic! xx

Re: Galastop & PTs

ooh, I must have had the post still open from the quick glance I managed to have this morning when only neotoma had replied :oops: will start her on 0.1ml twice daily for now and see if she improves, and get an appointment next week to see about getting her on steroids too. What is pred short for? t...

Re: Galastop & PTs

Thank you, will start her on the galastop tonight then I think. Neither of the 'willing' vets will be in until monday unfortunately but will get her there then n try the steroids too. Thanks again, was hoping you would see this; you seem to know your stuff when it comes to meds! I've got a copied an...

Galastop & PTs

I have a very wobbly old lady here who I think is showing symptoms of a pt :( How does galastop work in improving things for her? As I understand it is hormone related, so is it still worth trying in a girl that has been spayed? Is there anything else that may help her? I have some in the cupboard f...
