i have a question!! my rattie trey ate a couple pods worth of poppy seeds when she escaped from her cage about a week ago. She has been leaking porphyrin out her nose and eyes a lot and she is quite lethargic and just not the same as she used to be, she is about 11 months old. She is still eating and drinking, but now all she wants to do is hang out in her cage. i have read that poppy seeds can cause neurological damage and even death in rats, so i am quite concerned...i hope that someone has experienced this before and can help me!!

Thank You
