Hi all, Ive just witnessed my 1 and a half year old female dumbo rat Pixie do something worrying. I heard some scuffling in the cage so had a look, saw Pixie having what looked like severe hiccups! She seemed to slump a little bit afterwards so I stuck my hand in to give her a stroke and it took her a good 5-10 seconds to realise I was stroking her, usually she is quite skitty! When she realised, she perked up but then seemed to stagger a little bit, as if she couldnt see where she was going. I kept an eye on her and she climbed to the top of the cage where she then rested her head on the floor - she looked like she couldnt hold her bodyweight up! I picked her up straight away and she was quite limp, just hung her head. I lied down on my bed and rested her on my chest, she just lay there quite lifeless not really responding to much! Really thought she was dying to be honest The only thing she was doing was bruxing her teeth alot. After a few minutes of me stroking her, she all of a sudden woke up a bit and became her normal self! Started sniffing around and being more lively. I put her back in the cage and she has gone into her normal hidey place in the tube. Im so worried about her, she was fine this morning when she had breakfast but I have been out all day so havnt seen what she's been like. She has been eating and I havnt seen any sign of illness. What do you think this was?
