    My sweet 2 year old boy had a lump the size of a gumball! We got it removed today he has stitches and he’s doing good, alittle slow but expected. We were given two types of medication, one is antibiotic’s which is usually easy to give him since he’s a pretty calm boy. Though the second one is...

    Has anyone had to apply flea medicine to rats before? I just got back from the vet and she said that my boy Harry has mites or fleas. Because he has been losing hair and he used to be heavier then his brother, but he has lost a little weight. In general he was really not cooperative with the...

    I have had Tater for 1.4 years now, and he is 1 and a half. He and his brothers are the light of my life.

And rats get them a lot so I did a lot of digging to try to find a way to buy meds for them without having to take them to the vet every time.

    I've been dealing with a URI since maybe two weeks ago. I started my 2 year old boy Piper on amoxicillin first, and then ordered some baytril and doxy. When it got here two days later, I started him on both. At the time he was just making noises when he breathed, wheezy sounds that didn't stop...
