So i've had my rattie (soon to be ratties) for about a month now and he's still sneezing. it's not like a constant sneez type thing, there's hardly ever red porophyn (or however u spell that) around the eyes or nose. it's just that he sneezes every once in a while without a reason. sometimes they're fits for like 5-10 secs every 5,10, or 15 minutes, other times its fairly often. i haven't really found a pattern. he eats and drinks plenty and is quite the playster--always racing up my arm to my shoulder, then i pick him up and put him down and he does it again. i really don't want to take him to the vet cuz 1. i dont think he nos much about rats, and 2. i dont want to spend a lot of money if it's nothing big. thanks for helping in advance :wink:

ps: i've switched from aspen bedding to carefresh and now im trying to litter train him so that i can use cloth bedding.

LoL my guys sneeze constantly just little fits every once in a while same way with me and my cats i think yours are doing the same they just get junk up there every once in a while and have to clean it out just like us.
It's probably nervous sneezes LoL my new guy does it all the time just make sure it doesn't get any worse and there is no porphyrin around his/her nose or eyes (it will look like they have a bloody nose or crying blood)
