Betty, my rat, who some of you may remember, is sick.

Unfortunately, she is having respiratory problems and has a small stomach tumor. The doctor says that he's going to do some x-rays later today, but I'm worried. He's a really good doc and stuff, but I went to visit Betty last night, and she was using all her energy breathing. It was heartbreaking. Anyways, wish her luck, cause respiratory problems are common for rats, but Betty is my best friend (I don't have too many human friends) and I'd be devestated if she kicked the bucket. It's really hard being without her like while I'm on the computer. Oh well... :(

I hope Betty turns out to be okay, I remember you mentioning her before. Haven't you got another rat as well, or am I imagining things?

Well, we got her with another rat, (Ronnie) but she died about 3 weeks after we got her. :(

Odd though it may be for a cat-fanatic to wish a rat good health, I hope she gets better soon :hug:

Sorry to hear that. Tumours are really common in rats, specially females. Poor wee beasts aren't very hardy. :(

I hope she pulls through. I always hate losing ratties so much; they're so small, but they become like a part of you that's been there forever over the year or two you're together.

Aw gowd thats wierd i have a greyhound called betty and i used to have a rat 'hugh' who had respiratory problems and he used to rattle and wheeze and sneeze but he got quite better and carried on for about a year and half after that, although he was no ordinary rat, he used to sit in my pocket all afternoon and eat my scraps and sit at bottom of my bed on nights, bestest companions are rats!! I hope he gets better I know how distressing it can be to lose a close pet! :o

Aww, that's so sad :( I wish her my best of luck! :)

I lost 4 old pets this year because of old age, and cancer, 2 dogs, 2 bunnys. And now, we discovered that my 12 year old Dachshund Chelsie has an enlarged heart on her right side, and a bad heart murmur!!!:(
She is so attached to me. Makes it even worse! :(

I got an update for you guys. We just got a call from the vet, and she's doing better. We might be able to take her home tonight if the doc thinks its OK.

Good news! She's getting better and we GOT TO TAKE HER HOME!!! :D:D:D

She needs to spend most of her time in her cage, but as long as she's home I'm super happy. She's still sick, but she's gotten better. We need to give her some antibiotics, some liquid that rshe loves the taste of which is good. She has to take it mellow but it's just wonderful. :D

Rats are quite clever for rodents apparently.

Is this true?

I am glad Betty is getting better slowly. It doesn't matter what the pet, when they are ill it's heart breaking. Especially because they can't tell you what's wrong and it can sometimes be so sudden. Keep us updated on her progress. Here's some virtual cheese for Betty. :hug:

Betty's been home now for about 3 days, and has gotten alot more energetic. I'm up to the point where she can be out for up to around an hour a day. She's also begun eating more too.
