Hey all, Lavender, the mum of my other five ratties has had a head tilt for ages now. The vet had her on Baytril, then added steroids, on which she improved ever so slightly in her ability to cope - it wasn't turning her world upside down anymore. When that course finished, she was still sounding respy now and then but about a month or two has passed and as of yesterday, her head tilt has got her rolling again I'm having her daughter Shank's lump removed and getting her spayed at the same time this week, and just as well, as I don't think Lavi will be with us too much longer...she's 22 months old, nearly 23, and her symptoms seem much more similar to PT rather than an inner ear infection. She reminds me so much of one of my first boys, Joey, who was pts due to his pt at 23 months, it caused him to slowly deteriorate til he was pretty much a shell. I was just wondering if anyone knows of anything I can give her to perhaps ease her disorientation? I was thinking maybe some Metacam to ease any inflammation around her brain...she's still bright and fairly active. She's always been on the small side but is interested in her food and can still amble about and eat freely. She's had no hand clenching yet, her mobility is still very good.
