Does anyone know why my rat’s nipple is swollen like this? Is it painful for her?

No lumps. My others rats had tumors that needed removed, but this one only has the swollen nipple. She’s a year and a half. I don’t think she will make it to Christmas. I just ave no idea why she has the swollen nipple.

Just last month I put down my other two, they were 23 months. This one wobbles when she walks, falls over every time she’s scratching herself. Definitely acts like a senior rat. She’s now on the bedroom floor because she couldn’t do the layers of her cage, so I had her potty, food and water all on the ground.

Ok being wobbly could be inner ear infection (Amy head tilt or circling) or possibly.a pituitary gland tumour (PT) which can cause confusion, wobbly walking, falling over, inability to grasp with front paws, excessive bruxxing, confusion.
