  1. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I've had my little guy for around 6 months. He recently began scratching and losing fur. After a few trips to different vets and numerous medication, it is getting no better. He now has a big open wound across the back of his neck and lost part of his ear. The vet said this could be skin...

  3. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I have 3 male rats, and over the last week or so I've noticed that only one of them is losing fur on both sides, and near his back legs. I haven't noticed any fur loss in the other 2 guys, and I don't see any mites, scratches, or scabs, or notice him scratching an unusual amount. He doesn't seem...

  8. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    My hamster Barry is 2years 2months old and seems very poorly. I've called the Vets but can't get an appointment until tomorrow evening, but could do with some advice to help him out until then. He's suddenly lacking in energy, it seems as though he's finding walking a real struggle although...
