Sometimes when he is calmly resting he starts shaking slightly while breathing, his sides go in and out as normal, he is not breathing hardly from what I see in the sides, it's just that he is wagging back and forth while resting, not every time, but sometimes, what could cause this? The breeder has NEVER had a sick rat EVER that she couldn't treat with normal immune strengthening stuff like honey and rooibos tea. He is 3 and half months, maybe a week more, it is warm in my room, don't know how warm exactly, but probably over 20-21, maybe 23.
He only does this while resting deeply, when I picked him up I felt his heart beat, not sure if he was just surprised when I picked him up. He's the only one that does this, the cage is due a clean soon (I'm changing cages) so could it be that?
