Very large lump

855 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  renay
My hairless rat, who is currently nursing her 14 day old litter of 7, has developed a large lump in the space between her front right leg and her stomach, like her armpit almost. It is light in color, which makes me wonder if it is a milk gland or something like that. This has just developed in last few hours because she did not have it yesterday. I will post pictures of it later. Does anyone have any experience with this?

it could be a cyst, it could be a tumor it could be a swelled gland it could be a lot of things, i would monitor it over the next 24 hours, and then take her to a vet. I say monitor her for 24 hours assuming that she is having no problems nursing the babies and that she is acting completely normal..
