So, turns out the bath treatment didn’t work (killed the adults, not the eggs) so I had an appointment with the vet today to get the proper dilution of lice/flea/tick stuff and some syringes. Also took Luthien, aka “Sickly Rat” for a checkup because she had a rough couple of days. For those of you who haven’t been following, I got her about two weeks ago from someone who was giving away her rats and she was in really poor shape - basically starved to death and not even able to walk or feed herself. I’ve been nursing her back to health and she was doing really good: eating normally, gaining weight, drinking, running around a bit (though not normally). Two nights ago I though I was going to lose her - she couldn’t walk or sit up and kept kicking her back legs like she was running. I though she might have had a stroke or a brain tumor. She is doing fairly decently now and the vet didn’t seem terribly concerned. She gave me some meds for an inner ear infection to see if that doesn’t help her out with her balance. I had to have my roommate help me administer everything, which was a shock for him I’m sure. So, hopefully she starts doing better and doesn’t have anymore rough nights. Mainly I need to make sure she is gaining weight (right now Galadriel weighs twice as much as Lulu!). In total this month I have spent over $500 on rat related things. But I’m willing to do it. But next month they better be shining examples of health.
