I recently adopted three sisters together. All of them are 4-5 weeks old (my best guess). Very small still. I didn't realize that one of them was sick until I brought her home. Day 1 she couldn't even sit up. She would just endlessly roll over and flop on her sides. I found out that my family vet I always went to moved and the vet that took over doesn't treat rats. So fast forward to taking her two hours away to another vet that would see her and a huge bill later, she was prescribed amoxicillin. 0.3 ML a day, twice a day. I was also told that infant ibuprofen would help her. I've owned 13 rats in the past and never had an ear infection. She can now sit up and balance on her back feet, grab and hold food just fine to eat but as soon as she tries to walk, she bucks her head (almost like she has fluid in her ears shes trying to clear or is very dizzy) and circles endlessly. Aside from sitting up, balancing better and eating fine, her circling hasn't improved at all. It's very distressing. Last night, she almost died. (I believe it was unrelated to her ear infection) She started gasping, I took her to the bathroom and made it very steamy. She sneezed a lot and seemed to clear whatever it was that was causing her RD. I can't afford another vet visit (I've exhausted all of my funds on every possible thing to make her comfortable) until I get paid and I don't get paid again until the end of next week so I have very limited funds to continue trying to find something this week. Has anyone had experience with OTC or at home ear flushes? Or using grapeseed extract by mouth? Any treatment or anything that I could buy to help comfort her? How long does it take to see improvement with amox? It's been four days. Her sisters miss her but I'm afraid because they want to play roughly with her and she is not in the best shape right now. Her eyes are bright and clear, her lungs are clear. She seems healthy apart from the sneezing and circling.
