SweetPeas going downward
Well as some of you know I adopted 2 little guys on the 5th of this month. I already had a little one named Bishop.
The older and biggest of all three of my kids is now Nimph. Yes I named him that. I have no idea why. Nimph and Bishop are getting along pretty good after I got the go ahead from the vet.
I smeared them with baby food and now they romp every day.
However SweetPea, the very young dumbo male, has taking a tumble downward. He at first had bits of rust on his nose, but Nimph did too. The only difference was that Nimphs went away, SweetPeas did not. He also was reclusive. Well, like I expected, at about 2:00AM this early morning I found him heaving, covered in his own rust with pneumonia.
I gave him Enro/Doxy and Meloxicam for the pain of heaving.
I also have been syringe feeding him water and baby food about
every two to three hrs. I think that this is a result of being so young and vulnerable. He was maybe 3 weeks when I got him so he is much too young to be away from Mum.
He is of course separated from the rest.
Everyone else btw, is 100%~
Lucky me my Dad was taking our cat to the vet for her teeth cleaning. I wrote the vet a letter asking for advice and Clavamox. At about 4:00 PM he got back to talking with about the situation. He took confidence in my word and told me that from it sounds like, he may already be too far gone and I should continue with the regiments I have chosen for him. I have seen very little improvements since this morning to be honest. :C
Well i'll keep you informed but I do doubt greatly there will be a recovery...Any advice for a rat with pneumonia?
