I got my ratties 3 weeks ago. This is the first time I've owned rats and I tried to do as much research as possible before bringing them home.<br>I bought everything I possibly could to make them happy and I care for them like children, they sleep in the same room as me and my boyfriend and I constantly check that they are ok. Unfortunately the woman I bought them from lied about the conditions they came from. She advertised them as "healthy, well-handled baby rats" but from the get go Marshmallow had terrible mites and she sprayed them head to toe with mite/lice spray, in their eyes, mouths everything and told me to let it sit on them for 24 hours and they'd be fine. She wouldn't let us see their living conditions either she just dumped a whole bunch of baby rats on the driveway and I couldn't leave Marshmallow or Alfie behind I needed to save them. We quickly found out Marshmallow had a broken tail that had set itself and a chronic sneeze which three weeks later Alfie is showing signs of too. They have been treated for the mites with Ivermectin and I did immersion with them because Marshmallow was biting viciously at first. Now they are they sweetest little blokes and they love us to bits. Marshmallow has been making rumbling wet sounds in his chest every now and then, especially at night and I have been trying to feed them dark chocolate to help but they hate it, any advice on how to get them to eat a bit daily would be appreciated. They are going to the vet tonight to see to the sneezing and rumbling sound, I'm very worried about him.
