Hi, my rat's tongue has swollen quite a lot overnight and also turned blue/purple. She has been very sick recently and has barely eaten or drank anything. She has a tumor/bump on her stomach. She hardly ever moves and when she does, she usually falls over. I'm wondering if maybe she bit her tongue while she was moving around? Does anyone else know what could have caused this tongue issue/how to treat it? Thank you so much

It sounds like the circulation was cut off to the tongue which is really bad. This could mean your rat has a heart problem. Take your rat to the vet if you can.

Hi everyone, unfortunately she passed away shortly after I posted this. I don't think there was much we could do as she was already so close to the end of her life. Thank you all so much for the help
