|Comment||Wow... Thank You So Much for getting back with me so quickly, AND for taking Your time to answer my question with such precise detail(dosing & weight)...For REAL, Thank You. I will definitely write and give you a complete "follow-up" after he sees the vet this Friday. Also, what You said is so TRUE...These wonderful little beings do have something about them that just captures one's heart.When I first brought Sniffers home, he was about 4 inches long,& he never, not even by accident has bit me. He has always been gentle w/a marvelous personality. So much so that a little after 2 weeks of buying him, I was back at the pet store and had purchased 2 more ratties,one hairless male, and a black with white belly dumbo rattie, who is also male. Each one is unique in personality, and truly the BEST pets I've ever owned. Sorry about that,I get carried away talking about them. Back to Sniffers. I'm thinking that I'm going to give him the motrin today, during the day, when he sleeps the most. This way, hopefully, when he is most active at night, perhaps that would be best to help him heal, so his pain won't be masked and cause him to heal wrong or for it to take longer. And this way, at least, hopefully the motrin could help him sleep a little easier during the day, when he is least active. Again , Ms. Irene Murphy, Thank You so MUCH for you quick response and advice. Sincerely, Sherry Bart|

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.
