Hey there, i was wondering if any of you guys know safe dosages of children's liquid painkillers to give to my rat. He came back from his neuter yesterday but the vet said they don't give pain medication for rats post-op. I know rats are tough little things but it seems a bit cruel, especially since everything looks so sore down there!

I just want something to take the edge off for him while he heals, has anyone here used human meds for their ratties?

I use children's ibuprofen. I would ask if they gave him any meds before or after the surgery. Technically they should dose him 30 minutes pre-op and again afterwards. It's a little odd that they don't give them any to take home, but I've never had my boys neutered.

Or if you need help, let me know the weight and I'll do the calculation, can't promise it'll be speedy though since I'm back and forth between programs.
