Not a good day with my boys. I posted a thread earlier about Rascal's fall. Now, it's Justin. My boyfriend took the boys out the cage for free range time. He called me and said, 'listen to this'. Justin's breathing sounded horrid. I'm going to try my best to explain this - I'm a first time rat owner, I've had my boys for for just over two months. They are almost 4 months old. The sound was like a loud gasping, grinding, wheezing sound mixed together. I was busy bathing my daughter, and I dropped everything and the first thing that came to mind wads chocolate drop. Just as I was about to give Justin the chocolate drop, he gave a big sneeze and the sound was gone. I gave him the chocolate drop anyway. I did the rat telephone thing, and I'm new at this, but all I could hear was his heart pounding away. After a few attempts I thanked I picked up abit if wheezing. I compared his breathing to Rascal, and Justin has a little bit of a wheeze. There are no signs of poryphin. He is active, eating, drinking. The vet is closed. It's Saturday night here in SA. And the soonest I can get him to the vet is Monday. I'm so new at this. And I'm being a panicky mom. But his breathing before his big sneeze was scary. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!!
