I have tried also giving her fatty foods to gain back the weight and no progress. I am not sure what more to do. I bought nutra cal which many people mentioned to use to up...
  2. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I'm afraid my new rat might be sick, I've asked around and it sounds like a Upper Respiratory Infection. :/ I was planning on getting him a buddy, but I'm not sure if I should if he's sick. He's only around a month and a half old, a regular fancy rat. But he's been sneezing like crazy, making...

    Well, Russell is now rounding out week 2 of 6 of his Baytril/Doxy combo, and I'm still concerned about him. His sneezing has definitely decreased, but his breathing has gotten worse again over the past two days. He squeaks and sometimes wheezes as he breathes, and nothing seems to help this...
  4. 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...

    My little one, Panda (8 weeks old) is suffering from what was called pneumonia by a non-exotic vet, though I am sure it is actually an upper respiratory infection. He was first given the antibiotic Baytril which gave him diarrhea and severe loss of appetite shortly after the first dose, so...
  6. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    About a week ago I picked up 2 male rats. The little guys have become my buddies. I noticed one of the rats is coughing/sneezing alot. I have done some research and I believe it may be an upper respiratory infection. What should I do???? What medicine can I treat him with? How do I know for sure...

    So I went to the vet and right away the vet when she saw her said "oh no she's sneezing!" she sneezed the same as when she's at home, and the vet said it wasn't good. She listened to the lungs and they seem fine but she could hear a lot of fluid in the nose and she's very congested. . So louna...

    I have a one and a half year old beautiful blue rat named Leeloo. Right now she is very sick. A few months a go she had to go to the vet and got medication for a URI. Her URI is apparently back, or never really went away, and she is now on medication for it, again. However, when Leeloo...
  9. 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...
  10. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I had adopted a baby lab rat from a friend about 2-3 weeks ago and me and my boyfriend hold her and let her run around everyday. But i thought that she would love to have a companion other than a human. So i went to the pet shop and bought another baby rat about two days ago, but when i brought...

  12. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Jack has a URI and is on two types of antibiotics for 2 weeks. I had x-rays done to see how serious the infection is, and luckily it's not very bad so his prognosis is good. The main thing I'm worried about is that the other 4 will all come down with it too. :( Jack is in solitary...
