My rat, Koko, has been on and off medications for myco for the last 10 months. Currently she is taking Chloramphenicol which has been keeping her from getting any worse, but she constantly makes breathing noises. Sometimes it seems pretty bad. Does anyone have an ideas for natural remedies that I can try in addition to the medication? Or just general tips on how to make things a little better for her?
I have a humidifier going in the room, I keep her cage really clean (she uses a litter box and has fleece for bedding), and I occasionally give her a small dark chocolate chip when the noises are really bad.
I have heard that garlic can help...has anyone tried this? And does it have to be raw or can it be cooked? cuz my rat wont eat it raw.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. I just want to help my Koko so bad; her sister died from it last month and it was awful.
