I have three male rats about 8-10weeks old who all have URI.

I got them almost 2 weeks ago.

One of them I quickly noticed was very shy and kinda skittish. When I would reach for him he would just almost stand still in fear it seemed and still does.

I noticed he often had rapid breathing even when laying down and rest. I also noticed he seemed to sort of hiccup often. The past couple of days he's started making guinea pig like noises almost constantly it seems.

He's been on baytril and doxy 9 days now and this stuff flared up about 3 days ago.

Is the noise part of the URI? Could it be something else? Is there anything I can do about it?

The vet said to let the meds finish there 14 day course then we will see what needs to be done. But I'm just worried about them all.

IMO, you should have seen improvement by now. Sounds like it has not cleared up, and maybe possibly getting worse. I would consult back with the vet.
