    Second edit at the top. God I love it when I'm right. It isn't a tumour! After giving him his second round of medication today, I noticed a teeny little yellowish wet spot on the lump. I squeezed it a bit and a bunch more came out. At this point he escaped to the salvation of my shoulders and...

    Does anyone know of rats vets near the New York Hudson Valley area? I'm really struggling to find one and the vet I go to now (Newburgh Vet) is extremely expensive and starting to slip in my standards of care.

Seeing a vet Isn't an issue, but if she...

    TL;DR: lump appeared overnight. Rat is from pet store with undisclosed health history. Lump is hard and does not seem to cause rat pain. No pus or drainage from lump or penis. Still eating, drinking, playing with cage mate. Is this a cyst, a preputial abscess, a regular abscess or a tumour? I...

    I haven't noticed any change with Ronnie's lump today. He has earnt a fair few nicknames around the house due to the lump actually including "the lump!" He is currently snuggling with his beloved brother "Reggie". These are some pictures from free range earlier. Even though they just play in...
