This might not seem like much but just the other day my Nazy rat looked like he was choking and having a hard time breathing. I got him & me into the car and while I was driving down to the vet I called and knew I was coming. When I got there, I had 3 dogs and 2 cats infront of me in line. I was about to go to the front and was going to hop knowone would mind but when the desk woman (someone new??) saw me and all I hurd was "Nazarath is here!" then the vet walked out braught me into a room and put nazy on hair and gave him an inhaler. She came in and talked to me about what could be making his breathing so hard. She said that he could have an absess on his lungs :'(. She said we can x-ray to be sure and of course I said yes. All of the techs were excited because I guess this was their first rattie x-ray LOL!! so that made the mood a lot easyer. After the x-ray she saw something that could have been an absess but it was shaped wrong so we believe it's a fold in his lung that has fluid in it. So he's still on his meds and this was $77.00 bucks later, the new front desk woman said "I would never spend that much on a rodent but thats just me, It's great you love them so much" I didn't know how to feel about that but anyways just had to share the snappyness of my vet for my little boy .
