If they can't walk without dragging their tummy, maybe? Or if they're more fat than muscle (and they're young rats?)

Usually you can tell just by looking at your rat if it is overweight or not, I know my piggle is borderline and Lulu has a higher metabolism, so shes thinner,... males weigh between 400 and 800 grams, and females weigh between 250 and 450 grams.. hope that helps :)

I don't know her exact age but I'd guess between 7-13 months.... She has a LOT of flabby skin and I'm a little concerned.

I know....it's just the only other time I had a ratsy as fat and flabby as this it was a HUGE boy I mean this guy was so big you NEEDED 2 hands to hold him! 8O (it was no coincidence that his name was Zepher like the blimp...LOL)

But anyway I was just a bit concerned because she dosn't seem to lose any weight.
