  2. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I picked up some feeder rats about 3 weeks ago and have been having several problems with them. Initially, all four of my pythons refused to eat any of them, which I found strange. About a week later I noticed that the tail and feet of one rat had turned a dark reddish brown color. Later that...
  3. Cats
    I don't know if I'm in the wrong forum part or not but right now I'm too worried to care. A couple weeks ago my cat, Jasmine was spayed. She was able to reach her stitches even with a cone on and it got infected. We went back and they put staples in and gave us anti-biotic. We noticed a...

  5. Aquatic Discussion
    Hello everyone! A week ago, my dad found my fish (a wild goldfish about 6 in. long in a 20 gal. tank) stuck under his decorative rock. He tried to lift the rock off of him but before he could lift it all the way, the fish struggled and pulled himself out from under it. All of this...
  6. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    My rat Minnie has been bleeding from her left ear lately. At first I thought she had maybe scratched it on something, and didn't pay it much attention. But now there is more blood coming out of the ear, and a sizable lump on her head in front of the ear (between the eye and the ear). I'm afraid...

  8. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I have a pet mouse named Chipper, he is probably not quite a year old yet. He is still capable of movement, but is not but nearly as active as he should be. Mainly, he is constantly opening and closing his mouth like a fish under water. I can sometimes hear something like a soft clicking noise...
  9. Lizards
    I got my first leopard gecko two years ago and she has been healthy most of the time. Last summer she got an infection in her eyes and mouth--and it took about a month to get her back to normal. We had a few months of good health and regular behavior. However, I started to notice a shedding...
  10. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Please Please help me if you can. I think my mouse has URI and I am wondering if they can pull through on their own? Also how long can a mouse live with URI? My baby has been panting for a little over a week now. I am so scared. What should I do about my other mouse that is with her? Thanks so...

  13. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    My rat Sampson looks like he has a major infection. I'm not sure how he got it, but it's escalated fast. I was gone for three days, and when I came home, my boys were all happy.. Except him. He actually tried to nip at me! So I calmed him down and picked him up, and looked him over, and noticed...

    OK, this is gross, but I'm a little worried. I have a female pit about 7 months old who we have had for a little over two months now. She got spayed last week and she has a soft bump around the incision. She is playing and happy as always, but I'm worried about possible infection...no other...
