I have a 2.5 week old male that is refusing the paint brush but won't eat on his own. He does drink some but he is dehydrated (I can see the bones in his tail) and I'm getting worried. It's been three days now and it has it's ups and downs. He's still himself, cuddling and bruxing but he needs fluids. I've been mixing his formula 50/50 with water and Pedialyte but I ran out last night. I'll have some more this afternoon. Is there anything else I can do for him? He won't take the bottle I have and won't take a brush or dropper. Please help me save him.

Try baby food. Everything I've read online said baby food is good for rats not eating and drinking. I give it to mine just as a snack and they love it. Hope your baby gets better!
