    Can someone recommend a good medicine (s) for bad respiratory infections? All my boys have it (not as bad), one is very affected by it though. He runs around frantically, he feels like hes suffocating and I would hate it to shorten his life in any way. Baytril (enrofloxacin) doesn't seem to...

    Hey Everyone!!! I’m going to be using this as a little ranting post. But for those that have seen, I got Mercy a few weeks ago and she was from a pet store that was pretty crappy in all honesty. Tiny little cages, zero handling, and overall, a depressing place to be. Last night Mercy started...

    Hey guys, I really need help. So I've got three male rats and they all either have a URI or maybe a Myco flare up. When I first started noticing the symptoms, I asked the breeder I got my boys from for help and she told me to give them all Amoxicillin (250mg capsules,) so that's what I've been...

    Hi, i have 2 rats who are both almost 1. One of them, Peanut, was making noises a few months ago. We took him to the vet and they said its just noises to show his feelings, but i don't think that vet is very experienced with rats. but the noises got a little worse and we started hearing noises...

    Hi, my friend recently gifted me a fur fluffy type material for my ratties cage to use as bedding through the winter. I am wondering if this would be bad for their respiratory system or if they chew on it will they choke? I haven't put it in their cage, I am just double checking that I am...

    My 2 y.o female rat developed classic signs of mycoplasma about 1 week ago. I began baytril when no improvement was seen after 2 days. She progressively has gotten worse and we took her to an exotic vet yesterday. I was under the impression that the vet would choose to euthanize her but to my...

    My girl who is just over a year old has been sneezing a lot lately and her breathing is high pitched (like a whistling noise when she breathes) but otherwise, she is acting normal and there are no excessive amounts of porphyrin around her noise or anywhere. Another one of my rats who is almost...
