Got back from a 4 day trip to find my pet sitter didnt clean as I asked AND she turned off the air purifier...
All 14 of my rats are sneezing mildly with CLEAR nasal discharge. If it was red i would take to the vet immediately.
Is this an immediate vet visit? Or will cleaning and watching be okay?
Could i try fish mox (i have it on the side.) Treating 14 at once is just so much.
Stupid sitter! She did not get paid since they were also out of food. Including my rabbits which can cause deadly gi stasis.

Fresh air, clean cages and watch and wait at this point. Hopefully all 14 clear up but rats with a weaker immune system it may turn into a respiratory infection, so keep holding rats sides to your ear daily to see if anything crops up.

Sucky way to come home from being away, i'm sorry.
