Please contact a vet!
Those are the words we're most likely to offer in any emergency health situation. By the time a health question or problem is considered an emergency, time is usually of vital importance. Please rely on your vet first.
We encourage you to post, explaining the situation. The rat forum members can then share their vast experience, recommendations and encouragement. However, we are not qualified to offer alternatives to the expertise or actions of a trained veterinarian. Time spent awaiting a reply could be at the expense of crucial time getting emergency services.
