I’d posted all was going well with my male rats, Charlie and Bosley. Tempting fate I fear. Bosley is always a sneezy boy and I don’t worry about that any more but recently he has been making ee ee noises when eating, like he was congested. Yesterday Charlie started the ee ee, clicking, sneezing etc noises and generally wasn’t himself. So both boys went to the vet and are on a course of AB injections. I was worried when we got back yesterday as both boys were scratching hugely, and I feared a reaction to the injection. But it stopped eventually. This morning Charlie is still sorry for himself. He cannot get comfortable, is pooing and weeing in strange places (normally he is fastidious about doing both in their toilet) and eating paper. He has just had a crusty piece of toast so is eating and drinking ok. Fingers crossed.
