    I have three rats and one of them was sneezing a lot yesterday. When I held her to my ear, I heard her lungs ‘rattling’, i could hear her breath. I’ve monitored all my rats very closely, I cleaned their cage, and they seem to be fine, but they do have a slight bit more porphyrin that usual...

    I have a couple of girls, about 8 months old, but shortly after I got them (from breeders) one began to sneeze. The sneezing became persistent, rather than occasional. The second rat started sneezing occasionally too, but not nearly as much as the other. I took them both to the vet a couple...
