Problem with one of my ratties...

1058 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Fuzzie
Betty has recently been acting strangely. She seems very weak and is dragging herself around, barely able to support her weight. She seems dissinterested in food and appears a very underweight with loose skin on her. She has also been bleeding a little at the nose, although she was doing this a few months ago and made a full recovery. She is only about 2 years old and we're very worried about her...

If anyone knows how we can help her please reply!

take her to the vet.

did the symptoms appear suddenly or did it take time to progress? if it was sudden it could be a PT or a stroke. how long has she been like this? how is her breathing? if the breathing is bad she probably has a respiratory infection and should be treated with antibiotics and perhaps a broncodialator or steriod. but be aggressive in the treatment as she is already 2 years old.
