Walter has been sneezing and coughing a small bit recently, so I took him to the vet.
The Unique Animal Clinic of Orlando will see both of those Extravagant and Roof Rats, and Dr. Shuflita labored very well with Walter.
At initially, Walter was not way too satisfied to be in a strange spot, and when she tried using to wrap him in a blanket to look at him, he complained loudly and lept to us. But the medical doctor uncovered that she could simply take a look at him although he was sitting happily on our shoulder, so this was not a difficulty. We even managed to weigh him (265 grams.)
Luckily, Walter’s lungs and coronary heart sounded excellent, he had no abdominal masses or tenderness, no noticeable discharges and the respiratory appears by his nose also sounded pretty good. Her analysis was that he may possibly have a insignificant higher respiratory infection and/or quite possibly allergic reactions. It was also feasible that his current sneezing and coughing could be owing to the colder weather and decrease humidity.
We mentioned therapy choices for Walter. When she was keen to produce him a prescription for Doxy and Baytril, providing them by mouth would be incredibly stressful for Walter (Baytril preferences terrible!), and may not be essential offered her results. She prompt we attempt some immune system help, furthermore raise the temperature and humidity in his surroundings (my dwelling business.)
She prescribed some DMG (N, N-Dimethylglycine.) I bought some from her, and also discovered that Amazon sells it (for considerably less dollars, of study course.) I am also heading to give him some Echinacea and Reishi extract.
I have also put a radiator heater (the oil filled kind, which is safest for him) and humidifier in his area, and keep track of the temperature and humidity.
Dr. Shuflita stated that Walter was healthier, pleasant and perfectly socialized. I can vouch for the to start with two, but definitely she’s in no way tried out to try to eat all around Walter if she thinks he’s “well socialized!” 🤣😍
