    Hi everyone! I woke up this morning and went to check on my rats, and I noticed that my rat Thistle has what looks like a hurt toe. It doesn't seem to be bothering him because he’s walking and grabbing on to things fine. Even when I touch it he doesn’t seem to be in pain. I can’t tell if it’s...

    I think my little Bean has injured either he paw or leg. I noticed when I gave them this fruit kebab and she wasn’t using this paw at all. It kind of looks like she’s keeping her elbow in close to her body too which make me wonder if it’s actually her leg. She’s moving around the cage fine on 3...

    Hi I'm just a funky lil guy and my rat is my best friend. I'm boring but I love to talk about my girls- but forewarning for my info dump, I talk about rat injury and death a bit (and uh malpractice, too) but I try not to be too graphic or sad. I got both of my lovely girls for $3 each as feeder...

    Our rat big Bertha gave berth about 3 weeks ago to 11 babies and they are all healthy. Recently however, one rat got singled out by about 5 or 6 other babies and they ate her ear and left a pretty big injury on the head by the ear. I have wrapped it up and attempted to sterilize but I have no...

    Hey rat lovers! About 20 minutes ago, my rat, Bosworth, jumped from someplace inside the cage and hit his tail on something. He was squeaking and chasing his tail for a few seconds but now he is fine. It looks like he scratched the tip of his tail and is bleeding but there is not active flow of...

    My pet rat opal has a deep laceration where his leg and groin meets, the muscle bid visible and he will not stop picking at it despite us putting a cone on him and trying a good ol' fashioned sock, he somehow shimmies out of it. Vet just cleaned it and sent him home with no stitches. I asked why...

In October, his front left paw was swollen and he wouldn’t put weight on it. We scheduled a vet appt. It started looking a bit better...
