Dear Khushi,

I am afraid I really do not understand what you are describing. Is it possible that she is having a seizure? She needs to go to a good vet.

If she is having seizures, she may have epilepsy or she may have developed a brain tumor.

I hope she is OK. Let me know if you can give me any more details so I can help you better. Do get her to a vet if you can.

I have had rats for 3-1/3 years and have researched them extensively. I am a mouse expert with 40 years' experience with mice. The two species are similar and yet also quite different.
