Sneezy rat

Post by lmc on Wed May 09, 2012 8:22 am

Dawn is sneezing quite a bit. She has always been sneezy, and it doesnt seem to bother her, but I couldnt find anything like it in any of the old topics, so just posting to make sure. She's not sniffly or anything, just sneezes. She just gets on with it so Im not too worried, but Id like to be sure.

It's just a thought so might be balls Wink Are they dusty at all?

Gideon was quite sneezy all his life. I found it got worse when there was dust build up.
Dunno if it was an actual allergy or the dust just annoyed him.

It could be a dust allergy, it could be nasal scarring at this stage too, if she's done it for a long time.

I wouldn't medicate for sneezing alone.

I would agree with the above Smile if it really is just sneezing and nothing else I wouldn't be overly worried
