Sick Rats - Need Help
PasserbyeI am much older than you.in Beach CityRegistered Userregular
HALP! Both of my rats are sick! From their symptoms, it looks like they both have upper respiratory infections. Alton seems relatively ok - some sniffling and some weightloss, but he still seems alright. Tony on the other hand is not so good. He's got all the symptoms (listless, hunched, wheezing, sneezing, weightloss, lethargic, all of it). We're going to be cleaning the cage, and I've got Tony in isolation with extra food, apples, tomatoes, and a little milk. We'll be picking up some Pedialite for him while we're out. Is there anything else we can do? Our heater hasn't been working properly lately so it's been cold in here (55ish). The manager is away on holiday so we can't ask him to fix it 'til the 29th. Is there anyway to get them warm? Will that help? We have towels in their cages right now.
I don't think I can emphasize enough that Tony's especially in a bad way. He's normally terribly timid and hates being held - he sat in my lap and slept for about 15 minutes without struggling at all (when I opened the isolation cage he walked right into my hand!) and I had trouble getting him back into the cage.
Please, please, please, please any help you can recommend would be wonderful.
