PostSubject: Losing them - help me !!   Sat Jan 16, 2010 12:03 am

Mine seem to be basically, dying. A lot of them, fast

I lost Audrey to a 'respiratory infection' 8 days ago. Since then 6 have showed the same symptoms - I had 9 rats left after Aud - and I've not lost 3 of the 6.

One I believe i will also lose

All are on baytril that are sick... help me

It sounds like SDA virus to me I'm so sorry.
I have been through this and it's quite hard if you're not used to having a lot of sicklies.... and the fact so many are lost is just horrific.
Put ALL of your ratties onto Baytril and see if a steroid injection is possible for them. I went onto this combinations... Frusemide, Baytril, Bisolven Powder, Prednisalone tablets - after one steroid injection to boost them up. All of the ratties NOT showing symptoms must be on Baytril and if they sound a bit blocked up, probably Bisolven powder too.

Really am going to be thinking about you
