Problem with one of my ratties...

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!

Did the symptoms show up gradually or very suddenly like overnight or a few days? Before this was she active and agile?

The porphyrin is the red fluid coming from her nose and eyes. Its an indicator of stress or illness, injury to the eye. ANY illness, not just respiratory. How is her breathing? Is it laboured or noisy at all?

How bad is her weakness? Is she eating and drinking still? Does she have a head tilt or fall over or off of things?
