Booger's doctor appointment

We brought Booger in due to concerns about scab, skin lumps and his breathing. The fact that he came to use as a 'rescue animal' was always an issue to be considered.

The examination found that the skin problems were not a real issue at this time. There was no sign of parasitic infect. Examination of his lungs with a stethoscope found there may be a problem with one of his lungs entailing a possible viral or bacterial infection. A regimen of Enrofloxcin and Panmycin was prescribed. The doctor also discussed issues of contamination of the other rats and suggest Booger be kept in a separate area from them.
