sneezing

  1. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Ok so one of my boys started sneezing the other day. I asked my sister in law what the problem would because we have had them about a month now and only one is sneezing. She said that almost all rats have a thing called mycoplasma which from what i have found most do have it just some it...
  2. Prairie Dog Discussion
    My vet just closed and I am going to call them first thing in the morning. But I figured I would ask here if these symptoms sound familiar to any PD owners. My girl is about one year old and the past couple of days she has been sneezing a few times a day but it has a little chirp that comes with...
  3. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I'm new to this forum and I'm really hoping someone can help me. I have two dumbo boys one who is around a year old and the other who is about 4 months old. The older one started sneezing about 3 and a half weeks ago so I took him to the vet. He gave him some antibiotics (I'm not really sure...
  4. Degu Discussion
    Hi everyone, I'm really worried about my degu. It's a male of about 2 and a half years. Back in April, my mom told me he had a problem with his eye, a white discharge. (I'm at university in another city, my mom take care of him) She wasn't worried because it wasn't a recurrent problem. When I...
  5. Cats
    This morning my cat came downstairs to greet me after waking, as custom. A few minutes later she started meowing very unhappily. I knew what was coming so I ran to grab some paper towel and put it in front of her on the floor. She threw up a LOT of yellow bile, and a little furball. This...
  6. Ferret Discussion
    I find my ferret sneezing a lot lately, what could be wrong? There are no kind of shavings in cage but he is not in the cage most of the time running around the house and goes behind the stove most of the time. (stove is never on when fink is loose and about)
  7. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi all, last night I bought a baby hairless rat from Petsmart (the lady said he was 6 months old but he's more like 6 wks old so she may have just misworded. I figured as much anyway). He seemed fine and healthy and played/snuggled with the other rat there and was active when I was holding him...
  8. Ferret Discussion

  9. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Ever since the death of his previous cagemate, my rat Bion has been running on the wheel frantically. He squirts fowl smelling soft to diarrhea stool during his marathons. The smell is enough to make my entire room smell rancid and its hard to keep up with. He's had the red discharge from his...
  10. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    My pet female mouse, Jebbles, has been sneezing lately. She has never done this before, and i really don't know what to do! She has another female mouse in her cage, which is her daughter, Molly. And i don't want her to catch any cold or germs from her. I've heard that giving chocolate can be...
  11. Cats
    So we just got a kitten from a humane society and since he's been home he's been doing a lot of sneezing. Anyone have an idea as to what is going on? :ontome:
  12. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I'm just wondering how long I should allow for the Baytril to really make a big difference? Russell has been on it for 4 days (today is day 4), and as of yesterday evening he was still sneezing (wet), though overall he seems to be sneezing with a bit less frequency throughout the day. (He does...
  13. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Yes, this is yet another thread about sneezing rats. I'm just curious if pollen can affect rats the way it affects humans? Russell has been sneezing more the past several days, and some of his sneezes are fairly loud. His breathing is fine, though, and he is still energetic and eating/drinking...
  14. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    He sneezed in my hand and now I am worried he is sick. Is one sneeze okay if SO FAR there are no other cold symptoms? Do your guys ever sneeze? (I Will keep you posted as to if he does it again).
  15. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    i just got a new hamster about a week ago, and was 3-4 days old at the time. he's been perfect until yesterday, when he started sneezing a lot and biting whereas he's never bitten at all. his testicles seem a bit red and swollen and he's a lot more inactive. when we got him he was pratically...
  16. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    My boys have been sneezing a bit more recently, and I did see Vladina's post on winter sneezing, which has definitely helped. My apartment is VERY dry, and I went out and bought a humidifier last weekend, and their sneezing has gone down a bit since I've had it on. However, they are still...
  17. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi guys, I joined the forum as I've just bought my first mouse. Mister Winston Shiny-sides and I want to make his life as good as possible. Since most of you are very knowledgeable about rodents I thought I would ask your advice. I have had little Shiny-sides for two weeks now and he seems...
  18. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I am actually a bit confused now. I got a rat from the pet store I work at. She was sneezing before I got her, but she was checked and didn't apparently have anything wrong with her. I felt more comfortable giving antibiotics (from vet) just in case and I have been doing so for about a week...
  19. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Last night around 11:45 one of my mice sounded like it was wheezing. I picked her up and held her, i was trying to figure out what was wrong but since she doesn't like me too much she couldn't sit still long enough. i came out here to look at different type of things it could be and found some...

    Hello everyone, I'd like to first state I am NOT new to owning rats I've owned rats off and on since i was 9 (I am now 20). couple years back I bought an female albino and two female rex's. They where all fine but the albino had always had a sneezing problem. They all died around age 3 with the...
