  • 🐀Geriatric Rats🐀
As our beloved rats get older we need to ensure they are appropriately cared for in regards to any age related health problems.
Rats life-span is usually 2-3.5yrs but with extra care we have seen older. However with age comes health problems. 
We recomend your rat is seen every six months and of they do develop a health problem and go onto medication we will recommend more regular check ups. 🐀Elderly rats may have red tears,indicating stress and potentially an underlying disease. Please bring them in if you start to see this regularly. 🐀Renal disease (diseases affecting the kidneys) may occur and you may see an increased in their urination. This means you will need to clean them regularly and use more absorbent bedding to avoid urine scalding.
🐀Elderly rats are likely to develop neoplasia or lumps. Mammary tumours are extremely common,especially in female rats. Some lumps can grow rapidly so if you are worried about a potential lump please bring them in as soon as you can. 🐀Respiratory disease is also common in older rats. Look out for any abnormal discharge from their nose,unusal noises or if their breathing looks stressed. 🐀Arthritis is common in our older rats. They may have stiffness and be less active and require long term medication to be comfortable. 
Your rat may go onto treatment to keep them comfortable but you can also change their environment slightly to help them out. 🐀Ensure they can move around easily, use a non slip surface. 🐀Ensure it is warm enough for them.
🐀Ensure they have easy access to their food and water.
🐀Use absorbent bedding and carry out frequent cleaning. 🐀It's all about keeping them comfortable🐀

We like to thank Jade Bosley for her gorgeous picture of Joey and Wilson. We know they are missed dearly and dedicate this post to how well they were cared for and how comfortable they were always kept (as you can see in the picture). #rats  #ratsofinstagram #ratlove #exoticvet #rodents
