Hello everyone.
My boy Hamish has already seen his vet, who says he has a bladder infection, which could also be the cause of why his back legs are having neurological problems. He also has blood in his penis every so often. The vet mentioned that its possible that he fell and injured himself.
I noticed yesterday that he is using his front paws oddly when he walks, toes closer together and tilted to the side.
I curious, has anyone experienced this before with their rats ? I'm wondering if he is getting bloodied because he can't properly lift himself off the floor when he walks?
I am calling the vet again on Monday to discuss other possible causes. He mentioned kidney disease as well. I am concerned it is tumor related.
I will post a video shortly.

He put him on Baytril. Once a day .1 cc SID for 14 days. He didn't want to have him on it twice a day like normal because he was concerned about his kidneys.

He didnt want him on metacam either because of worry about the kidneys. I worry about the poor little poppet and pain.
