    Ok so I bought a couple of girls from a feeder breeder turned pet breeder(no socialization done), when I got them they were(as I saw) kept with wood bedding. One of my girls came with a URI. I gave her meds for a week and the wheezing went away. But now when I have her in my hood sometimes she has wet sneezes. Am I paranoid or did I stop the meds to soon? She was on antibiotics for the 7th through the 13th if Dec.

    A week of meds is never long enough for a uri. What kind of meds was she on?

    yes you stopped the meds too soon. They need to be on antibiotics for at least 4 to 6 weeks ...... I have found that my rats need to be on antibiotics for 6 weeks
