Agreed. Did you call the vet today?

Yep, called this morning and told them she was getting worse. They asked me to bring her in tomorrow morning, but I told them I couldn't cos I have no way of getting there. So the receptionist talked to the vet I dealt with last Friday and he's given me tablets.

It's Ronaxan, anybody else used that before?

I have to give her a 10th of each tablet twice a day.
They said to crush it up, put it in a line and divide it into 10.
Anybody done this before? I'm wondering if I can make up the 10 bits or does it have to be freshly added into whatever she's getting it in?

I've heard of it, and it sounds about right, but don't quote me on it. I've never used it before but Zoundz should be able to advise you.

Dosages for Ronaxan are as follows 5mg per kg twice a day. What size tablets are they?

Works best alongside Baytril really, if it doesn't work alone, ask for a Ronaxan and Baytril combination.

They're pretty small. I can't think of a tablet to compare it to other than my ciprolex (sp?) antidepressants. Lol!

If I'm making it up, is it okay to put each part in whatever I'm putting it in ahead of time or does it have to be fresh? Just slightly worried I'll lose some if I have to wait.

It really does have to be fresh or the rats won't eat it most likely. the best way is to cut it up and then put each 'part' into a piece of tinfoil and twist the ends shut. Then when you need it, you just pour the powder out of the foil and into the foodstuff. I would ask the vet exactly what size the tablets are, as in how many mg - so that we can work out a dosage... I'm sure we used to start off on a 16th of a tablet with Ronaxan, but it may have been a bigger tablet.

Update: Sybil is MUCH better since she's been on the new medication. The noises have basically stopped, and she's even getting a little more curious about interacting with us.

I'm not completely sure if it's the meds or if she maybe had a bit of dust irritation/allergy cos starting her new meds coincided with removing the litter from the bottom of the cage, which had been causing a lot of dust build up.

Either way she's much better. Thanks for all the advice and help. Smile

He gave me a 5 day course, but it's working out longer the way I've been doing it cos it's not all used up yet.

Just gonna keep going until it's done. Smile
