Mortimer wasnt ever in a good state of health when I first got him, he was bloody and wounded when he arrived to me from Petco and I still am unable to handle him -while thats fine and all, he seems to appear have gotten some sort of upper respitory infection over the past week? I dont know. But, I can't take him to the vet! My mom wont let me.
Mortimer seems to just lie there for a while like he's tired and wants to rest, and he breathes rapidly nonstop. I dont know if this is a sign of old age because I have no idea what his specific age was when I purchased him from Petco exactly - but he might be a few months or a few years.
Right now he's on his wheel and he's just panting rapidly.
Can someone help me with an estimate?
