So I recently noticed one of my male rats started breathing very unusual and has a bit less energy like he normally is if anyone may know what is going on I'd very much appreciate it. Please help me save my boy!

You'll want to get him to a vet as soon as possible, it sounds like an upper respiratory infection and he'll need antibiotics for at LEAST 2 weeks but a month or two would be better to ensure it's gone

I have the medicine I wanna make sure he's breathing ok can I use a nebulizer?? I hear using an infant one works best but I don't know what saline solution to use also thank you so much for responding!

This is what I found please tell if it is safe to use because I want him to be able to breathe easier I hate seeing him so uncomfortable, I found 2 different nebulizers and a solution with the ingredients attached so you can tell me if it's safe to use or not

I know other people have used them before but I personally have no experience with them myself and I know there's a chance they make it worse instead of better, the best thing to do is to get that medication in him as soon as possible so he can start feeling better
