|Comment||Thank you for your response, Irene I really appreciate it. First off I would like to apologise for the lateness of my reply. Millie is doing better now we managed to take her to the vet to get her looked at, although she wasn't displaying any obvious symptoms at the time other than producing porphyrin we were prescribed antibiotics as the general thought was she was suffering from a respiratory infection like you had said. The vet was very nice and was very keen when working with rats which was a massive relief in itself. I want to thank you for the warnings about PT, I haven't come across it before but I have had experiences with my previous doe rats and tumors. Now I know what I should be keeping an eye out for. Also I'm very sorry to hear that you've lost one of your girls to such a thing. Thank you again for all your help and speedy response.|

I can answer a variety of questions regarding adoption and care of pet rats throughout their lifetimes, including questions about their health and well being, temperment, diet, bedding, cages, toys, etc. I will try to answer your questions to the best of my ability in a timely manner and I have an abundant amount of resources to help me to help you with your pet rats. I love rattie pictures, so include pics with your question if you can. You may ask me medical questions, but please be advised that I am not a vet. I may use my resources to answer some medical questions, however, I will need to refer you to your local vet with medical questions that I feel I am not qualified to address.
I have been a huge rat enthusiast for many years. Since becoming a rat owner, I have educated myself in all areas of pet rats from every resource I could find including the internet, books, conversations with local exotic vets, as well as several local rat breeders.
I have a college degree but not in the area of animals. I have obtained my extensive experience and knowlege of pet rats all on my own because in my eyes, pet rats are the most interesting and fascinating creatures you can ever imagine to have as pets. I also am saddened by how mislabeled and misunderstood these amazing and extremely smart animals are by the majority, and my mission in life has become to educate and change as many people's perceptions of rats as I possibly can.
