Consistent sneezing in new rat

Post by GillianK on Thu Aug 09, 2012 10:30 am

Just got my 3 new girls last week, but one of them Bessie is sneezing a LOT. She does sometimes snuffle too. But otherwise is the most active of them all, eating and drinking well. Shes been sneezing from day 1 and its not improving. Should I do anything? Go for baytril? Or just let her be?

Personally I'd not medicate unless she's showing other symptoms or looking unwell or not herself (I guess that's hard to tell 'cause you only got her recently), but since she's eating, drinking and running around etc. Sneezing could be caused by a whole host of things- changes in bedding/environment or stress to name a few. Mine get sneezy sometimes but I never bother with any medications unless they seem out of sorts or have a few symptoms.
