    Well, if all goes well, Sky should be delivered tomorrow, Tuesday, April 15th, 2008. She was to be delivered this weekend, but the lady who was delivering her got run down by one of her mares and I am really sick with an upper respiratory infection/fever, so, we both decided to wait a couple of...

    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...
  3. Degu Discussion
    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...

  6. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Okay so a few days ago I got antibiotic for Remi's upper respiratory infection. He seems to feel better, not breathing quite as heavily, still making some squeaky noises but not nearly as many. He is making a lot of noises that sound like chewing on something hard with a few squeaks between the...

  8. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Okay as I said in my last post I've only had my new boys for a few days. Remi has been pretty calm and sweet from the get go, Emile is still a little nervous. Last night I had them both out and my sister wanted to hold Remi because he's so little and precious. While she was walking around on her...

    My rat has been ill for a while with a chest infection and was on medication, which I stopped but started again. She has been very floppy these past days and today I noticed blood coming out of her genital's, I had noticed a sort of scab over it a few days before but thought it was nothing, does...

    Long story short, our foster cat had five kittens two days ago. Four black tabbies and one all black one :) They're SO cute and she's been a great mom so far. I promise I'll make a thread soon with pics and stuff but I just started a new nursing clinical rotation and I'm soooo tired and busy...
  11. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Ok. My boyfriend has become addicted to "hooded" rats. Well we were playing with baby rats and he fell in love with a rat. So we brought her home and as I was setting up a tank I took time out to listen to her. I don't know if this sound is comming from her vocal box or her lungs. I am pretty...
  12. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I had a rat before. I loved her very much but had to have her put down because she developed several tumors. She didn't make much noise, just the regular grinding of teeth. I then bought two more females (who in turn had two litters because they were not separated at the pet store.) One turned...
  13. Animal Welfare & Legal Issues
    I went to a little farm in a forest today and it made me sad to see the state some of the animals were in. Most of the rabbits were coughing or sneezing and they had mucus all over their faces. I noticed that some of the breeds were from up-ears and down-ears and so had ears that hung in a...
  14. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    So about 2 months ago, my son Brandon's pet rat Josh started acting funny...he looked as if he had head tilt, so I took him to the vet. The vet said that although his ears weren't bad, he looked to have a little bit of an infection starting. He put him on Baytril and sent us home. Well, the...
  15. Pet Health Concerns
    We moved about 6 months ago and had to tie my golden retriever up (before he wasnt tied up-maybe that has something to do with it), he is losing his voice-he will bark sometimes and other times barely be able to. He is about 14 years old in good health-he's not losing weight or his playfulness...
  16. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I was looking at my rat today and I noticed that one of her eyes was closed due to a coating of mucus that had dried and she had mucus coming out of her nose. What can I do to help fix this? Is there anything around the house I could give her that would help? Thanks in advance, AnimalLadyE
  17. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Can someone explain to me what a respitory infection is? These are my first two rats & I notice they sometimes sneeze.It's not an everyday /every moment type of thing,but they were like that since I first got them :confused: BUT I don't think it's "normal" nonetheless. Let me add,they were...

    Of course I have this ridiculous cold. My head is so congested and I know my sinuses are swollen. I can breathe but it's like not that much air is going through. I have taken a dose of regular sudafed and 2 doses of the night time...I have slept yet..oh well that's beside the point. My...
