  1. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Da Vinci's getting worse...If any of you remember, I posted about him "croaking" or "oinking" every once in a while.. I walked in today and he was doing some high-pitched sound when he was breathing...I want to say it's wheezing but I'm not 100%. The Vet's phone is busy, and even then the Rat...
  2. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi, I have a little rat, Fiver, who's pretty ill. I've been hand feeding and medicating her (baytril, doxy) for around two weeks. She's around 2.5 years old now. Ever since she was young she'd make burbling/squeaking sounds most of the time but especially when she was excited. About two weeks...
  3. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I've had my rat Bella for a little over two years now, and for the past couple of months she's had chronic respiratory disease. She got it from another rat she was with for a while, and when I took her to the vet, he diagnosed her with pneumonia and gave me antibiotics. It turned out that we...

    I recently was given a chinchilla by my mother. It has a 7-shelf cage that is about 5 square ft at the bottom, and is about 5 feet tall. My ex Girlfriend is moving to another university at the end of the summer and leaving me with her pet rabbit that she refuses to take with her out of sheer...
  7. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I just got her yesterday and it's the first time I heard it. She also keeps licking her mouth and cleaning her nose. I let her sniff me and touched her stomach and I'm not sure because she wouldn't let me touch her beyond that but it feels a little bloated Here's a link to the sound...

  10. Memorials
    In August of 2006, my sister came into my work with a tiny little black kitten. Her then bf (now husband)'s neighbor's cat had a litter of kittens, and they were giving them away. Rosie was 7 1/2 weeks old, but was tiny, and just really strange looking. Her belly was very swollen, her head...

    I got a degu from this guy over the weekend, and she was in bad shape. Sue is very underweight, she has saggy skin, her teeth are bad, her wheel was too small, her cage had a lot of bare metal on the first level, she was missing hair from her tail and she even had a very bad smell to her. She...

  15. Chinchilla Discussion
    Well everyone, I picked up a 4 month old white chinchilla his name is kiwi. But I am concerned about Bailey my ebony, he is sneezing alot. I think he has a cold. I talked to several breeders, and have found that taking a chinchilla to a vet is deadly because the chin becomes overly stressed...

    My bunny is sneezing and sniffling. At first i thought it was just cute, but then it started to worry me. What are the signs to a bunny cold? Can i give him chewable Tylenol or something like that, or does a vet give it to him? Please help! If i need a vet's appointment i need to schedule it...
