    I was free ranging my rats and looked away for literally TWO SECONDS and I come back to my rat like this??? Does this warrant a vet visit?? Or can I just put betadine on it and call it a day, maybe wrap it up?? He was sleeping totally fine with his cage mates minutes before this happens, no...

    my pet dumbo rat that i have had for almost 2 years has already had an upper respiratory infection, which has already made me worried. i had went to the vet to go and get her some medicine to be treated about a week or 2 ago, and she seemed like she had been doing way better with her breathing...

    Last week, a friend gave me their rats due to them not being able to take the boys with them on their move. They seemed to be doing well and adjusting well.

    I've just let my ratties out to play on my bed and I noticed that one of my rats, Venus, is tilting her head to the side and losing her balance. I read that it could be an infection but there is no puss coming out of her ear, I don't smell anything and she tilts her head to BOTH sides. She...

    My rat Sage had her first litter in march 30th, she had 12 babies. They were doing great up until Tuesday when my roommate realized four babies were dead. Sage is in a cage with her cybil and she has a super mellow temperament so I know she wouldn’t do anything. Anyway I decided to take the...

    Over the last few days I've noticed my rat Moishe seems bored of her Oxbow (yes I give her greens and fruit every other day.) But I feel like she seems underweight. The last few rats I have had have been on the chunkier side and males. She's about 9 and a half months old and is a very active...
