Another rattler :(

Post by katherine on Thu Jul 19, 2012 9:33 am

Septimus has started rattling Sad Roll Eyes He isn't showing any other symptoms of illness except for the tiniest bit of porphyrin on his nose earlier today and it isn't all the time but when he does it it's quite loud. Basically I want someone to tell me it isn't CK Embarrassed

Cry oh for heaven's sake Sad this is so bloody unfair Sad

So far the rest of his siblings are 100%. At this stage (taking off my miserable head and swapping it for my sensible logical one), it's probably just nasal, and likely not to be CK - I would try treating with Septrin if you can get it, to hopefully nip anything secondary in the bud.

I'm so sorry Sad Spend half my life wondering if we should just let this line go Sad

Hopefully just nasal. Sure Blanche had rattled on and off throughout her second year and is (in terms of the rattling) fine. x

Switch is very rattly and porphy stained as well now. Septimus started hiccupping yesterday too, but stopped after a few minutes.

Taking them both in on Monday (stupid not open on a weekend vets Angry )

I would say hiccuping is nothing to worry about - all rats do it at some stage I would say.

Hope Switch is OK. I do think there's something mild going about Sad

Well Switch's noisiness is clearing up nicely with the spetrin. Septimus is still quite noisy though Sad
