help my rat is making weird noises

Post by sophielizzie » Thu Mar 26, 2020 2:08 pm

Help my rat has started making these chattering noises that I can only describe to sound like a pigeon! He started with them yesterday or the day before but they’ve got louder and more frequent. He doesn’t sneeze and he seems to be breathing fine and he’s alright in himself. He’s only 12 weeks old and these are my first rats. Should I take him to the vets as I know rats are prone to URIs?
Thanks any help would be greatly appreciated

At that age, it's likely to be parasitic bronchitis. See the advice in this recent thread: viewtopic.php?f=138&t=44734
Poo-shoveller to: Calyn (NLA32); Zephyr Nyahir; Zephyr Zymandis; Zephyr Blasto.
Fondly remembering: Zephyr Mick Jagger "Edgeworth"; Din (NLA28); Zephyr Donovan "Phoenix"; Xeltan; Lita (NLA32); Lia (NLA28); Zephyr Delanynder (NLA28); Falere (NLA36); Mirala (NLA36); Zephyr Opold; Rila.
