Ive come to that choice too. He looks miserable tonight he can no longer use his back legs. I have chosen to give him a tiny wicy bit of my dads medication that is supposed to stimulate the blood to your brain and heart and break drown any clots, it supposed to help humans with stroke and was tested in rats so we will see if he gets better by morning. If not I will let him go. The only thing is my dad has to do it, the vets cost SO Much money and my parents don't want to spend that much. I have a feeling he is too far gone and last night he might of had a second one. Today I dug a hole next to Ollie my rat who died in march who lived 3
Yrs. It's just really tough as I love him sooo much and he always used to at his cage door waiting to jump into my arms for kisses or attack my socks now his just sad :'(
I am sooo mad at the breeder I bought him off. She said her rats were healthy, she had no myco in her rattery ( she did ) and they wernt line bred!!! She did everything! And I tried sooo hard to prevent illness there cage gets spot cleaned every day, a wash clean every two days, fed breakfest and dinner with a full day supply of grain, fruit and vedge, they get one onone time with me and then all get an hour in the play room, they get fed natural herbs to help there immune system! I did everything!! And now I've failed my poor, poor Elliot :'(
p.s there are also rats who have survived stroke and gone on to live happily even with there head tilt... I just don't know!
