something is most definitely wrong with my rat brigitta. it started when I heard loud labored breathing coming from the rat cages. I lost my first rat to breathing issues after a very long battle that lasted months so i recognized the noise immediately. I started some detective work to figure out who the noises were coming from. The hard part is she's not super sick yet so her labored breathing isn't consistent it comes and goes. But liesel did that too at First. anyway I'm now certain brigitta is the one who's sick I caught her labored breathing more than once and her noses drips red gunk rather often but again its not consistent. so far I'm not seeing signs of illness in my other girls. Eponine and Anna seem fine and Arielle just recently had a vet check up and is healthy. I'm taking Brigitta to the vet Friday but does anyone know if she's not breathing funny when we go to the vet since it isn't constant Do you think the vet will still be able to tell she is sick? when they use the stethoscope to check lungs and heart will it show anything or do I have to wait until she is much sicker and her breathing problems are constant? I'm kind of worried.
