    I have a rat with cancer and she’s around 2 years old. She has a big tumour on her side and she’s lost a lot of weight recently, probably because of declining health. I’ve been feeding her high-fat foods, like avocado, recently to try and help put on some weight but I think it might be making...

    Tonight my girl was climbing up her cage when I noticed a deep would located on the bottom area of her stomach. I check her everyday so it is new. Any idea what it is? What caused it? And how I should go about treating it, at home or at exotic vet. Thank youuu

    I am at my wits end. Should she be put to sleep? Via (female, 1.5 years old) had a big tumor, her third. Went in last week to remove it, we've been through this twice and know the process, easy peasy. Or so we thought. She opened her stitches the day after surgery, the stitches go from the...

    Hi I have woken up to find my rat Clover with a big and deep gash on her neck just above her leg. She must have had a fight during the night, as she is alpha of the mischief. We are going to put her in a separate cage and isolate her for a little bit. Me and my dad have managed to bandage the...

    Ebisu had an abscess that popped and now, rather than letting it heal, she has chewed off most of the skin. It looks really really bad. The vet has no idea how to stop her as there are no cones for her size. I tried making a sock sweater and bandaging it with the sticky bandage stuff but that...

    Today I tried to introduce my original rat with my 2 new girls and it ended badly. It was only about 5 minutes into the first step in the carrier method that I noticed my original girl had a wound on her stomach. I immediately separated them and gave her a ton of treats. I cleaned the wound with...

    My pet rat opal has a deep laceration where his leg and groin meets, the muscle bid visible and he will not stop picking at it despite us putting a cone on him and trying a good ol' fashioned sock, he somehow shimmies out of it. Vet just cleaned it and sent him home with no stitches. I asked why...

    Edit: Some have suggested this could be mites and I think you're on to something. However I'm not sure how they'd get mites, as I use fleece and incontinence pads for bedding, no shavings or such, and I haven't introduced any new rats. Is there anything else mites could spawn from...
