ok, so my little 4 week old rat Sphinx is sick......it started with sneezes, and i thought it was maybe allergies to something in the cage....so i cleaned the cage and put fresh toilet paper as bedding...didnt put cotton balls or anything else in, told people not to smoke around the babies' cage (i wish they would smoke outside.....but apperantly that idea is "not practical"). it keeps getting worse, ive tried the whole steam in the bathroom thing, and the upside down thing, and the freezer thing....i kknow a vet wouldnt be able to give him meds cuz he's so young.... and i dont want to take him to the vet just to have them tell me they cant do anything for him..... so does anyone have any suggestions. ive been watching wolfy (his litter mate/cage mate) carefully, and he doesnt seem to be getting it....he has no symptoms, not even the slightest sniffle or sneeze or anything. but im still watching carefully....i dont want to separate the two of them cuz sphinx is in a cuddling mood and likes to drape himself over wolfy's back.....unless sphinx is cuddling me......he needs a cuddle buddy, and i dont want him to be alone when he's feeling so crappy.....please any suggestions would be helpfull.....unless nobody is willing to try to help me. i understand if nobody wants to try to help.
