They are describing 4kg of loxicom, and batyri 0.2mls each once a day. The cream twice. But my rat squeaks everytime he is touched now. He never used to. He used to come running to see me in the cage and he doesn't! He seems nervous. Im worried if he has lost trust in me. When i stoke him he goes on his side like shying away from me. Im worried that this will my affect my relationship with him He clearly doesn't want to be picked up like he used to and squeaks when i try to...i try to give treats every time i stroke him. when the vet saw him they shaved around the wound. i dont want him associate touching with pain.feeling so sad. He is so gentle and I'm having fears that this might lead to aggression or biting. Although he never has. He never used to be scared of me. to save the stress of the vets on Monday they said i could send pictures in. I dont want to distress him. I wish he knew that i was trying to help him.Flamazine is good stuff,Loxicom IS meloxicam (Metacam) and Baytril. You have the correct treatment now Do you want me to make sure your Loxicom is an appropriate dose? Is it 1.5 mg/ml? How much does your rat weigh?
