I'm not very good at doses myself so I hope someone else comes along for that.. I would keep trying to get food/water in his system. You can try water on a spoon or in a shallow dish and see if he drinks it.? Dehydration is a killer... I wouldn't want him to go that routeChewie doesn't move much at all now and he doesn't want to take the babyfood anymore which is bizarre considering how much he loves food. It breaks my heart how he tries to wipe all the med off when I put it in his mouth after not taking it with food. He doesn't seem to want to eat his lab blocks anymore. I'll see if he changes his mind tomorrow.
Do you have any dark chocolate.? If you do don't give him too much but it helped one of my rats breathing when she was struggling. Keep giving him the food he'll take and try the others as well.. I'm routing for him.!I've tried to give him some medication but idk how much actually went in. He isn't interested in the soaked rat nuggets anymore nor the babyfood. I tried giving him some water but he wouldn't take it. He's had tiny nibbles of carrot and apple. He likes the granola I gave him but when I mixed it in the lab block mush he just picked out the oats. I'll have to find other foods. He barely moves around, only to get tohis hammock and down occasionally. Idk if he's drinking water by himself and his heavy breathing is still continuing. I really don't know if I should continue with the antibiotics or put him to sleep so the same thing that happened to my last two rats doesn't happen to him
Sorry for the late reply.. I gave my gal as much as she would take as she also wasn't eating much.. If he drops it and you don't see it happen it might melt under him. That happened to me with my rattie and I had a heart attack.! You can also try all different baby foods. I found all of mine fight over Pear, peas, and spinach (I tried it once and I don't understand why they like it so much.!) as always best of luck to you and your little man.!Thanks I totally forgot about chocolate! Luckily we had some and I gave him a piece about pea size. How much do you reckon is too much? He's had a bit of granola, water and food but not a lot to be honest. Trying everything I can
