Default Re: Rescue Ratties

Thank you, im still a bit numb from having to say goodbye to his brother last month. I have found sometimes whne you lose one early, their sibling develops something also.. they perhaps feel it more and their immune systems get hit. I think because seeing his brother suffer with his resp, I am a bit more sensitive to seeing suffering. Even if it was an abscess, of where it is, its already leaking into his ear and likely if it fully drained it would refil. I currently have an ear infection myself (ironically) and have drops and its making me miserable. He's got a bald patch from scratching at it so it must be uncomfortable more than metacam can touch. It's frustrating as it looks like i could just stick a pin in it and pop it and it would all be fine. Rats and tumours >.<
