Re: How long to keep alone after op?

As far as I was aware, putting them straight back in with their cage mates was never an issue. Ive had my rats in for 3 lump removals and just put them straight back in their regular cage with their pals as soon as i got them back from the the vets. My vet is Judith Brown from forest hall first vets...

Re: 3 rats only 2 with scabs? fighting or other problem?

None at all on their undersides, only on the back of the head, neck, shoulders and back. Deeley never rapes Lyla and she is totally fine. I mentioned that Lyla had a bit of rex and her fur was sparse because i was wondering if she would be less prone to mites because of that? Or would it not matter?...

3 rats only 2 with scabs? fighting or other problem?

So ive got 3 girls. Trixie and Deeley are both a bit scabby on the back and shoulders. Lyla has not got a mark on her, however she has a bit of rex in her and her fur is more sparse. They all live together and ive made no changes to bedding/substrates etc and they havent been exposed to any other ra...

Re: Not wanting to start a argument. ETA re replies to threa

I came on this forum as a complete noob to owning rats and personally i have to say all questions ive raised have been answered most helpfully. If carlsberg did rat forums, this would be it. As for the obit section, its one of the sections ive NEVER actually looked at. These are my first rats and i ...

From what ive read on here, baytril is not meant to be given to rats under 12weeks and is it can effect skeletal development.

Re: Rat Noises

There's only 1 vet who works out my local surgery and she was nice enough, but she referred me to the other vet who wouldnt give me the AB's. I've phoned around other local vets and non seem to have much rat experience. So even though its gonna be difficult, it is doable to divide the capsules. My D...

Re: Rat Noises

Long story short - my vet is rubbish! Ive managed to get some doxycycline off a friend, however they are in 100mg capsules, which can be opened up and its powder form inside. Do you think it will be safe to try and divide it up to a rats dosage and give her that??? She's still making the noise after...

Re: Skin irritation due to urine

I wouldnt like to give out any hazardous advice, but maybe someone else would know if baby nappy cream Bepanthen or something could be used. Whatever, hope you can sort out something for the little fella.

Re: Lyla just ate a diamante

No glittery poop this morning, not that im gonna inspect them all like. How long does it usually take for something to go through a rat?

They are funny little buggers, I swear she smiled when she stole it :lol:
