I Am Trying To Find Out About The Different Vaccinations And Other Treatment The Following…
I am trying to find out about the different vaccinations and other treatment the following animals need to go to an animal boarding (so they will be in close contact – same room). I’m getting lost on google though… This is what I found out so far:
Rabbit: Myxomatosis & Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD), worm and flea (and other parasites) treatment
Ferret: Canine distemper, Rabies, worm and flea (and other parasites) treatment
Guinea pig: no vaccinations, flea (and other parasites) treatment – worm treatment unknown
Hedgehog: no vaccinations, worm treatment – flea (and other parasites) treatment unknown
All the following need no vaccinations and all unsure about worm and flea (and other parasites) treatment.
Could someone help me answer this list? I would be very grateful 🙂
Are foods containing baking soda harmful to pet rats?
Over the past two days my rat has been showing all the symptoms of a Pituitary tumour. I know this is a Pituitary Tumor with no doubt. My parents and I are trying to get prednisone or amoxicillin or both. I know that she will have to be on them for the rest of her life. But the problem is that she is loseing so much weight and I have to take her out of her cage and hand feed her because her cage mate, honey, will snatch the food from out in front of her. She can’t hold her food and her paws are curled most of the time. Her eyes also have been covered with that red stuff (I forgot what it is called) and also the inside of her paws. She is always walking slow and when I hold her she will just sit there and I will pet her. Which isn’t normal because she would always run down my shirt and sit on my shoulder but now she doesn’t even have the strength to hold on. I don’t know what to do I want to put her on the medication but it will be atleast 3 or 5 days until I get it. I’m scared, I don’t want her to die. And I can’t afford to take her to the vet 🙁 How long will she live? How do I make sure she is eating enough? Which medicine is best? And what how many mg? Thank you and you don’t have answer all of these questions, just what you know. I’m sorry it’s so long. PLEASE HELP?!?!? She really means alot to me!!
One Of Them Seems Perfectly…
I recently bought two pet rats who are both females.
One of them seems perfectly healthy, but the other one is almost constantly sneezing, and she has wounds/bumps on the edges of her ears that she keeps scratching at.
I thought the sneezing might be because she’s in a new home, but the other one hasn’t been sneezing at all. I also thought the bumps could be mange, but the other one has no sign of it.
I’m wondering if this can be helped, or if I should take her back and exchange her for a healthy rat. (They were originally meant to be feeder rats)
So I bought a rat on Feb 26 and realized she was pregnant Friday. She spotted in her nest Sunday night and her babies still have not come. Should i be worried or is she fine? Her nipples are out and she has the body size of 300g
I have called my vet and the xrays to examine are too much for me to afford. My rat is 2 and half years old. He had a brother but he passed away from a severe uti issue. Which we tried to treat at my vet. I was worried that hed become depressed but now ive been seeing signs of an issue with this one. At first he couldnt climb as usual without falling, then he couldnt maintain balance when grooming, then he wouldnt use his hands, after he started showing signs of head tilt. It happened so rapidly. He does eat and i give him water through a syringe and he is active.
He also started showing signs of a uti so i had him take amoxicillin.
Im getting weary about continuning giving him the antibiotic now because hes looking tired and exhausted more often. I know i dont have many affordable options so i just wanted to ask if theres any dos or donts from here on out. I just want him to be comfortable as possible and avoid doing anything to further the problem. Thank you for your time.
My pet rat front paws or feet are a bit scraped up and were bleeding but Isn’t anymore, plus one side of he’s face is puffy and swollen, what do I do?
One of my male rats has been urinating red substance that isn’t dark enough to be pure blood but I’m worried still. This has been going on for a couple weeks. What do I do?
This is a serious question, I’m curious. I feel that pet food these days isn’t that nutritious, and dogs and cats should be hunting for their own food instead of being given this crappy foul tasting “wet food”. In the future, I wanted to buy rabbits, mice, and rats and put them in an enclosure with my dogs to teach them to hunt. Would this be legal? Because I don’t see anything wrong or inhumane about this seeing as people buy live mice for their snakes to eat. So why don’t we do this with dogs and cats? Surely wet food isn’t as good for them?
I have a 2 year old male rat with a uti. I went to the vet and was given an injection for inflammation and an antibiotic. Hes had a uti for about a week now. I have to push his pee out on a regular basis.
My question is how long until he begins urinating on his own? And how long does the illness usually last?
Btw hes eating and drinking normally now and is moving around. Id just like a general time frame on how long id have to do this. Thank you ?
