I have a 8 mo. old Hooded who is rather small and delicate. Hes never been healthy, his whole life has been a continuous stream of visits to the Vet, followed by Antibiotics, which did little or no good. His main symptom was SNEEZING. All day , every day sometimes 10 or 12 in a row. Drove me crazy with worry, as well as supporting the local Veternarians.
Now like most people I'm not crazy about housework, and can tolerate living in a somewhat messy pad. But last week I CLEANED this house, mopped, dusted, vacuumed,scrubbed and sweated. I even dusted each individual book, the back of the TV,Computer. The bottoms of tables, shelves etc. I CLEANED!
And the result: A Miracle, not a sneeze since. Not one! this from a Rat who was chronic, diagnosed by 3 different Vets as having Severe Resp. infection. And what it was all along was a Hyper Sensitivity to Dust. Thats all it was and he is a different Rat now, He seems more alive ,more eager to play and has a healthier appetite. It must have been horrible for him all these months but now things are OK and I will keep this place up, and realize I have to for his sake. I might even buy an Air Filter to help out.
Anyways I thought it might give some help to those who also have Chronic Sneezers to hear my experience.

that's good to hear! and it will be so much easier to keep clean now that you did it once thoroughly. that's always the hardest part. :)
