    Yesterday my one-year-old rat had mammary tumor surgery and ovariectomy. Since yesterday she is not using her back paw. She can walk, but her paw has no strength.

    Hi, my name is Jordan Sugg. I have two rat sisters named Paris and Dixie. Unfortunately on Wednesday evening, Paris got her front paw caught in the door. Because she panicked and tried to pull away, she fully fractured her arm (Radius and Ulna) :(. Sadly, she will need surgery tomorrow to get...

    Hi, my rat had an abscess around 3-4 months ago, when she was really small. She had a surgery and after that she seems to be doing fine, though she is quite timid. But today I saw her tooth is growing outside her jaw!!! It seems to start from a place where a scar from a surgery is. I have my...
