Re: [---NOT--- my rats] Sudden mysterious deaths

Recieved more info on clarification on the possibility of poisoning. nope we hardly ever get visitors. The vet said it is possible that a toxin could get caught in porous material (plastics, wood etc) and I should replace all of it. So I'm throwing it out and I bought a new glass waterbottle, but we...

Conclusion: meningitis
Email? Meningitis? I'm sorry but i'm rather confused. This wasn't emailed to me it was a journal on an art community website. As for meningitus, i've never heard of it in rats, have any studies of it in them?

Re: [---NOT--- my rats] Sudden mysterious deaths

It's got me thinking perhaps there is a 3rd party present. I know she said she lives with her family whom are all distraught about the deaths, but per chance a friend or non member of the household could have poisoned them. I know it's jumping to huge conclusions, but that does only seem anything I ...

[---NOT--- my rats] Sudden mysterious deaths

A member of an art community website had drawn my attention to this post. I've not heard of these symptoms before. I felt it sounded like SDA but not having experience with it before I cannot tell. Does anyone have any thoughts on what exactly happened here? Note: I had permission to repost this for...

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Blended rat food added con apple juice + water. Didn't seem to like it as much. Seems to prefer the mash still. (got them in cups trying them hourly mixed on a spoon) She seems to have lost her front paw control. It's reminding me so much of PT. She is responsive to her name and suprises (BF droppe...

Re: Worried About New Rat

Looking at his whiskers, they're curly. Definitely a rex, if you're worried perhaps you can give him a dose of ivectomin just in case he does have lice or mites?

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Unfortunately we only have powdered mash and ginger spice powder, we've made her some and gave it to her, she seemed to enjoy it also. Thanks for the suggestion Muskrat.

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Shes had some fish+apple juice concentrated about 8PM and now some broccli+ apple juice concentrated. (minced/crushed) Shes not using her hands but she is eating from a spoon. Not too sure if this is a good sign but she isn't turning her nose up to food like she was last night.

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

Still not looking too great, no improvement/decrease. Although when I just turned around and called her she turned her ear and responded that way. I syringed some more water into her earlier 0.5 just to keep her going. Will do some more in about an hour or two. She is urinating at least.

Re: Vaginal bleeding had 3 injections for Pyometra

It does seem a lot and I have questioned it. My usual vet told me rats can have upto 20 times the ammount dogs can. I'm not sure why. Either way she was on 2ML when she came out of the OP he had given her prior. Edit: 2 or 1.5 i'm doubting my memory. He's perscribed her 1.5 dog metacam daily, (from ...
