    Me and my partner recently adopted an older girl (1.5 years) as she had been alone for a few weeks and needed company. She is still in quarantine as we heard a whistling noise when she would be overly excited/stressed. We took her to the vet and he said that he thinks that this noise is from...

    I wanted to make a post on this topic, as I have seen numerous threads from users asking for help, when their rats get a respiratory infection. Often times people are begging for help because they either do not have a vet nearby that will treat a rat, or they cannot afford an exam visit plus...

    This is going to be a long post but please read it... So my rat, Cloud, is showing signs of possible respiratory infection (Again) and at first it was just classic symptoms (i.e. Lethargic, Porphyrin around his eyes/nose, etc.) but then when I came to put them away from there small ten or so...

    Do I syringe it into their mouths? How much? Thank you! [Yes, I know this is a last resort option.]

    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...

    Hello. I need advice. My rats have respiratory problems, I took them to the vet recently. It's not that bad, just some sneezing and porphyrin from nose. I had one more rat who passed away due to respiratory problems but she had more serious symptoms - sneezing, wheezing, problems with breathing...

    Problems: rat-aggressive, blackening top incisor, squeaking fits, sneezing fits, and now has a scratched [?] eye. I got 4 boys from a breeder [a very good and nice one!] less than a week ago. Everyone is perfectly behaved except this tiny white one. We have a vet visit scheduled for the end of...

    I just had an absolute nightmare of a vet trip and it was unfortunately one of my baby’s(6weeks old) first time having to go, I had taken one of my other girls to a different vet before (who was great, but she was booked), but this girl’s breathing was off and I wanted someone to see her right...

    Not to long ago my rat started sneezing, which I chalked it up to a URI. And he got a lump under his throat (which seemed to be a swollen lymph node from the sneezing). I took him to the vet and got steroids only to realize he was not responding to them. It started getting worse though, he...

    So as any rat owner has most likely experienced my rats have uri's. 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. BEHOLD the answer to my prayers Petpharmcanada.com I thought no way but I saw they...

    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...

    One of my boys was recently on baytril, doxy and a bronchodilator (Theophylline) but his symptoms improved. They've come back, but I realized his medications were in my car for several days and it's been extremely hot here. Are these medications ineffective now? Are they dangerous from heat...

    I took the Edna and Rose to a local vet in town to get checked up for URIs. Everything was completely fine. Skin and fur are perfect, noses are clear, appetite and hydration are fine. Lungs sound fine. Turns out they're just irritated. Now, I'm not sure if it's form their old bedding, dust...
