    My rats, mainly Gerard, have been sneezing and they have been breathing a bit funny. Should I get them checked out or are they fine? I'm quite worried.

    I just got my rat a few days ago and he’s been sneezing nonstop, any suggestions? Is this normal for rats who are put into new environments? How many days should I wait until I take him to a vet? I’m very worried for the little fellow and want him to be okay.

    Hello everyone! My 6-7 month old male rat, Feta, has started sneezing quite a bit in the last few days and I noticed a runny nose as well. The runny nose is clear liquid and no signs of red porphyrin around eyes or nose. He’s eating and drinking water as he normal does (from what I can tell...

    Hello, first time rat owner here. I got two young girls about a month ago, Ed and Son. They're 2.5 months old. I took them to the vet for a regular check-up since the breeders did not tell me anything about them. I mentioned that Son had occasional sneezing fits and they prescribed antibiotics...

    . <— video My rat has been sneezing quite a bit since last night. Yesterday I changed the bedding so it might have been a little dusty. He seems fine everywhere else. No porphyrin, his breathing is normal, and he is behaving just fine.

    Hi, so i have two boys (one hairless and one fancy) and the fancy one is older than the hairless one. Matty (fancy) has been sneezing for about a year and a half and Kurt (hairless) followed shortly after that. I’ve taken them to the vet, both of them were put on Baytril, nothing worked. They...

    Hi everyone! I’m a new rat mum, and i recently got 2 babies, pickles and pepper. Pickles is around 8-9 weeks i think, and pepper younger as she’s a bit smaller I’ve only had them for 5-6 days, so i expect them to be sneezy as they adjust, but they’ve been super sneezy recently and pepper has...

    recently I changed my rats' bedding to aspen shavings as I think I may be allergic to my previous one. I researched the aspen shavings and videos recommended it, I even asked on here and I looked at reviews on sites and everything seemed fine with it. I switched over the bedding and as soon as I...

    Hi all, A few weeks ago, Chickpea started sneezing and so I took her to the vet. We were prescribed Baytril for 10 days, which honestly didn't seem to do much (she wasn't getting better or worse). I ordered some Baytril and doxycyline and dosed the medications using Rat Guide, since I've read...

    I am a first time rat owner and got 2 rats just under a week ago from a pet shop. They both seemed fine at first but about 2 days ago one of them started sneezing. He seems to be sneezing pretty often now, both when he is in and out of the cage but mostly when he's moving around. He's completely...

    I have two adult hairless rats, one young hairless, and one young regular rat. The young ones were the offspring of my female hairless. I am not a breeder nor did I plan it. I’ve had the adults since they were about 6 weeks of age and they’ve always been sneezing. I’ve changed their bedding...

    Since I’ve had them my rats have always sneezed consistently. On average they will sneeze around once every 2 minutes. They’re soft little sneezes and they don’t seem to show any symptoms of pain and it’s been like this for months now. I’ve changed their bedding many times and have finally just...

    Around once or twice a day, my rat, Bosworth, gets these sneeze attacks. There are about 10 or so in each round. I have heard about new home sniffles which causes sneezes and other respiratory problems like that but I have had my boys for about 3 weeks now and I was wondering if I needed to look...

    Hi, I purchased two blue dumbo rats 10 days ago (Freya & Silvia). Both are about 2-month-old females. Since getting them, they both presented with what sounded like sneezing at times. Silvia having it more often than Freya. I initially thought it was nothing more than "new home sniffles" but...

    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...
