I just noticed that Gus is making these weird gurguling noises and so he probably has some fluid in his lungs so maybe pneumonia. He is going to the vet tomorrow but for today what can I do for him? Also what meds will the vet probably prescribe.

Also I have heard that you can give them dark chocolate to help a little is that true.

The really really dark chocolate is supposed to help (70% coca or higher I think) It didn't really work for my girls but other people have had success with it on here.

It was just to ease some of it until the vet visit tomorrow. I'll keep you guys posted.

Went to the vet today and he said that Gus has a URI and he gave us doxy and azithromycin. He also said that because we caught it early he should recover. That is the first of hopefully not to many sick rats.
