What is an Emergency?

This is a list (probably incomplete) of conditions considered emergencies in rodents:

Take to a vet right away:

- Difficulty breathing

- Animal attack

- Serious trauma

- Persistent, uncontrolled bleeding

- Dystocia (inability to pass a baby)

- Seizure

- Non-responsive


See a vet the same day:

- Not drinking for more than 24 hours

- Not eating for more than 24 hours

- Significant weakness or lethargy

"I don't understand the 'If I can afford it' part when I'm sick." YEP! It's good to set aside $ and have the vet contact info on hand before the emergency, no kidding!

With chins we could add dental and digestive problems such as:
>> overgrown incisors, drooling (wet mouth), eyes protruding (you're in big trouble by then, advanced malocclusion)
>> really small droppings, diarrhea, mucus
