Re: Rat safe rugs

Not sure about rat safe materials, Id assume most rug/carpet material ought to be non toxic.

But...I would also say, in my experience, that a rubber backing will likely encourage them to chew it.

Id go with something light enough you can stick it in the washing machine from time to time ;)

Re: Ear Infection or Pituitary Tumour?!

Sorry Im late to this, but that's a superb result :)
Go Ziggy \o/

As an addition,
Ive used steroids loads of times, occasionally for weeks at a time (PT) but I didn't know they could, potentially, cause that kind of reaction, so Ive learned something important here myself, thank you both ;)

Re: Odd behaviour after ear infection

My boy Seavers (aka Colt Seavers from the fall guy) came to me as a rescue with a very bad inner ear infection. He would literally corkscrew in my hands. I treated with ABs and the infection cleared up, the tumbling stopped, his balance was mostly good. But the head tilt remained with him for the re...

Re: What to do for the best

It sounds like what youve seen here is "flyting", this is a survival state where they move very fast in more of a bounding jump than a run. Its generally in a blind panic. Ive seen this a couple of times with rescues, and it really is a case of going very slowly with him. The important thing imo is ...

Re: HELP! Something stuck in throat?

So glad to hear she was all clear on the xray. Thats really good news :) I agree it definitely seems like a choking incident, and if it was an airway choke, then its possibly caused some aspiration / fluid into the lungs, which ofc can result in infection too so the ABs are a good step. > Rose that ...

Re: HELP! Something stuck in throat?

oh the wee soul :( That's good they've been able to get her more comfortable, she must be exhausted. Hope she is fully back on her feet today, sounds like you've all had a pretty traumatic 12 hrs. Also, if its been her windpipe, rather than throat, then keep an eye out for any resp issues as a resul...

Re: HELP! Something stuck in throat?

Normally they will fix it themselves - thats what the drooling and retching is for, to lubricate their throat and dislodge the obstruction. Its been a while now, only just saw this, how is she ? If you feel she is struggling to unblock it herself, then you may need to get her to the vet so they can ...

Re: 2 y/o buck drooling and lethargic

HI, I just read this and am glad to see he is getting better :) From what you describe it does sound like a serious choking event, likely from something getting stuck in his throat/airway. The prophyrin is likely from the stress of it - must have been quite traumatic for the wee guy, and exhausting ...
