Unhappy Trip to the vets today :(

I had to take my youngest boy smudge to the vets today he has developed a serious head tilt It transpires he has got an inner ear infection which is what i thought. They gave him 2 lots of antibiotics at the vets and i have a 6 day course of meds for him here. He didnt like the injections much bless his little heart he kept running and going in my pocket. I felt so bad but i need him to get better! His balance is starting to go all off on his right side where his head is tilted so much xxxx

I'm glad he's getting better. What antibiotic is he on? Have you tried mixing it in baby food, pudding, or mashed avocado or banana? Sometimes they'll take it that way. Also, sometimes you can mix into something thick like the mashed banana and rub the necessary dosage on the back of their ear or their back or something. Even a rat that doesn't want to eat medication can't help but groom something sticky off and they usually end up eating most of it in the meantime.
