    My rat Bean has recently (within the past month or so, I'd say) begun to make little chirping and squeaking noises when she's awake and about. To sort of preface this, she does have a mass on her chest which she will be getting surgery for, and has had two vet visits and at both visits, I was...

    . <— video My rat has been sneezing quite a bit since last night. Yesterday I changed the bedding so it might have been a little dusty. He seems fine everywhere else. No porphyrin, his breathing is normal, and he is behaving just fine.

    My rat has been having symptoms of a respiratory infection lately. She is still very active and seems to be her high energy self, just with the added stuffy nose sounds. I've been calling to all the vet clinics in the area though and was only able to get a appointment on Wednesday, which is...

    I just posted about my rat Quinn having a tumor, but so does my rat Chonk. Chonk is a female that I estimate to be about 1 1/2, but I got her from the SPCA so the age is estimated. She recently developed a lump on her belly so I took her to the vet. The vet said it was a tumor, but it was very...

The patch which is the biggest literally has no hair, all you can see is skin. Willow lives with her sister Hazel who...

    I broke down into tears today as I brought my third rat home. The pictures/description were so misleading. And I ended up buying a rat I didn't want. I drove 45 minutes and walked into this ladies house who kept baby ducks, a ferret, a number of reptiles and these huge birds. Place smelt awful...
