Need health advice

Post by Rhiannon99 » Fri Jul 28, 2017 9:55 pm

I have 2 rats which are both only about 6-7 months old. One of them however has started acting very strange. She has lost a lot of weight recently and is reluctant to eat pretty much anything. I have also just noticed tonight that she is walking very strange. She seems to not be using her hind legs properly and keeps kind of bending her bum down but keeping her tail up. She is clearly not very well as she is also very inactive which is extremely unusual for this pair. Would just like advice on what it could be and how to help. Anything would be much appreciated.
Thanks, Rhainnon

Could be any number of things, but weight loss, lethargy, and lack of appetite require a vet visit ASAP.
