I have just see...

Re: Is there any way to "ignore" certain posts?

I have just realised who you are all referring to and I have read the post and some of their others. I have to say that they all make my blood boil or cry or both!! They are clearly doing this for attention, something my 3 year old would do, and as with her, if I ignore her bad behaviour it usually ...

Re: Ozzy not a well lad - penis plug?

How many drops of Metacam has the vet recommended and how heavy is your rat? . He said to give him 0.8ml once a day. Does this sound right? Could I give him 2 lots of 0.4ml? He's also having 0.2ml of Baytril twice a day which he takes fine :roll: Izzerie, yes I think he must have caught it on the b...
