Re: Teeth

Just back from the vet. She had to be put under briefly as it was too painful to look at while she was conscious. There was a bit of the broken tooth in her gum which was quite difficult to pull out. The intact bottom tooth was slightly overgrown, as was the opposite top tooth so will definitely nee...

Re: Getting frustrated with a girl her won't eat her meds!

I have two rats on Galastop and Baytril and I find it easier to give the Galastop in the morning in banana or apple flavoured baby cereal (mixed with boiled water and left to cool) which hasn't failed me yet and Baytril in the evening in squirty cream. I did try and give the meds together but found ...

Re: PT?

Thank you very much everyone. It's never easy is it? It upsets me sooooo much every time. One of the girls is a non-handleable, challenging girl. She was a rescue with her sister and she absolutely hates any kind of change. She's struggling a bit with the loss of Tilly and it's really difficult not ...

Re: PT?

Thank you for your reply. I'm totally devastated. She took a massive turn for the worst last night. She kept collapsing and just staying there, was having trouble keeping her head up, didn't seem to have control over her front legs, had a massive amount of porph round her eyes, was all fluffy and no...

PT?

Tilly was fine in the early hours of Tuesday morning. When i woke up, she was very very fluffy and had "tired" eyes. I took her to the vet who ruled out things like pneumonia as her lungs, nose, breathing etc are completely clear. The vet couldn't feel any obstructions/lumps in her abdomen. It seems...

Bongos breathing

My older lad Bongo has been on Baytril twice a day for nearly three weeks to get rid of a snuffly cold. He's been doing really well but I noticed earlier that he's breathing more heavily and seems to be having to make more of an effort to breathe. He's not a handleable boy but I have been able to pu...

Re: Sneezes

Just spoken to the vet and mentioned about the advise i have been given and although it wasn't what she would have originally recommended, we are going to try Maisy on Baytril orally for a month and also nebulise with Baytril daily and see whether there's any improvement in a couple of weeks.

Re: Sneezes

Thank you. I do appreciate everyone's opinions and advice. I guess I feel that i'm between a rock and a hard place with the vet telling me one thing and you guys saying another and me not knowing what is the best thing to do! My vet is going to ring me late morning and i will discuss with her again ...

Re: Sneezes

I knew Bisolven wouldn't help her nose, but i didn't know that Sudafed could help. Do you think that it's worth trying? How much and how would you give it to her?

Re: Sneezes

It may well be that Maisy is just a "sneezy rat" rather than actually ill. I had a "sneezy rat" years ago and Maisy seems to be the same. The vet does not want to prescribe meds at this stage as there are no other symptoms at all, she is behaving completely normally and is eating and drinking normal...

Re: Sneezes

Sorry, that was me confusing things! When i mentioned Dex, what i was trying to say is that the vet didn't want to give medication at this stage. I just wondered whether anyone had nebulised sneezy rats and if it had any positive effect.

Re: Sneezes

It isn't severe enough to warrant medication. She has no discharge, is behaving perfectly normally, is eating and drinking as normal and the vet says she is not raspy and her lungs and chest are clear. She just sneezes. It may be that she is just one of those "sneezy rats". Rather than give her medi...
