So my hairless girl, Victoria, had a lump on her throat. Vet saw 3 and took a cell sample to see if its canerous or not. results came back as an infection. She is on medecine now.
So i woke up, took her out for her morning meds...and she looks terrible. breathing hard. making some weird noise(like a ferret dukin kind of), and i offered her food and treats and shes refusing. She keeps jerking her head foward. And her lump seeems lower or larger. She looked fine at midnite.
I don't think she will make it much longer...So today i'm going to see if i can get a vet to see if anything can be done. if not, i won't let her suffer. i will have her put down.
I figured this would happen since its on her throat, which will stop her eatign and breathin...but she was put on meds, so i was hopefull.
Sorry i totally rambled but i just dnt know what to do
This is not a typical abscess! That is sick rat, with the respiratory and lack of hunger. Is she new to the colony? Have you brought in a new rat recently and didn't do a full proper (separate airspace) quarantine?
