there used to be a list of questions to ask a vet to find out if they really know what to do for a pet rat,
does anyone know where I'd find it?

This forum has removed so much good info
All I could find is this which was unfortunately written by Debbie D. whose standards of care were very low, and who did many horrible things to rats, and also had good info as well as bad info.
Anyway here is the link the Rat Report

thanks SQ
yeh I know all about Debbie D, she was quite a study in contrasts. Professed to love rats and on one level may have indeed loved them but doing surgery on them without anesthesia, which if I'm not mistaken, she admitted to and saw no problem with, that really does make you wonder....

will check out that link anyway just in case it gives me some idea of things I should ask

I know, but others might not.
I think there is a warning and link in the Reference Thread regarding her
Good luck re finding a vet .... maybe we should start a new thread?
