Wink Oh, WHAT FUN!!

I had to bring one rats, Timbit, to the vet yesterday due to possible RI, he was checked out throughly, the Doctor I took him to is the best in the clinic. She knows excatly where to feel around for abnormalities, ie: tumors, etc and she has found them on animals just by the touch and saved pet owners al lot of money they would have had to spend for xrays.

He did really well, most rats HATE it b/c well they are not used to being handeled in that way, plus just geing in the vet room stresses them and the poo everywhere, lol. But hey, no one is supposed to feel confortable getting a check up or examined. Human or pet. And it is best for them. But suprisingly he LIKED the feeling around, and looked content as she was doing it like it was a massage. My sister and Dr.Simms was suprised what a good boy Timbit was!! She spent a good 10 minutes on him, and she said he sounds good but since he did show some signs she would give medication.

YEAH, I was hoping for the banana flavored kind as they LOVE it, but they were ALL out and gave me horried Strawberry kind that tastes AWFUL!! -100+ dollars and that was not the only fun of the day. Lets just say first treat ment was horrible, could not catch the little guys in their cage!! No one wanted it and was keen on not getting it. I think I missed one in the confusion.

WELL today I had a good idea...a cloth!! and I moved one of the squares of my cage ove so there was to be no running away. Plus well they were asleep!! I wrapped them ups and they ALL got their medicine, they did not like it but MEH sorry, Vet's orders!! Now I have 12 more hours and another dosage!! SIGH...they hate me right now!!

I feel quite proud of myself but bad at the same time as they now hate me!! BIG BABIES!!

lol they'll live, tough love right? they know you're not hurting them, so they'll be fine, just coo to them while youre giving the meds, the voice can be soothing

Yep two of my five boys are on AB. Yeah they don't much care for it do they I wrap mine up in a towel with their butts nearest me and their heads facing out then I sneak in and squirt'em. bawahaaaa. We are often greeted with nervous poos in the towel. Most of time it only takes 30secs but that Cosmo is a wily one He gets the better of me occasionally. But, hey, I'm a mom to six human kids, I've done the meds before. The momma will not be denied.

Good luck med-ing the ratties.

yeah the rat burrito (rat wrapped in towel) isn't a cure all but it helps. Like last night Cosmo was one wily guy. Likely he only got half his dose. This morning though I was champion!!! Cadoo only has one or two doses left. Hopefully we've seen the end of URIs with him. We'll see about Cosmo. If I don't see the chripy-ness gone by Fri evening, I'll have to haul him to the vet.

Aww, poor guys. Giving meds is no fun! They'll forgive you quickly though, I'm sure.

Thanks, they are only on it for 10 days so after that they should like me!! And NEXT TIME they NEED medication I will DEMAND BANANA flavour!! B/C treatment should be a good thing, not bad. And banana is their fave!

How are they doing?

When I have to give meds to my rats,I put their dosage in some fruity flavored baby food and they lick that up fully,so they get their dose,plus some yummies!

I never had a rat that liked the syringe!
