Pet rat. Seizures or choking?
Question by cb1993: Pet rat. Seizures or choking?
In a previous question asked, My rat chester seemed to be having seizure like movments. Well I finally did go to sleep hoping i’d wake up to my rat acting normal again, but now he is acting the same way, but insteas he is laying down anc exhuasted. i can only guess he has been having these “seizures” all night.
My question is do you think my rat is having seizures or choking?
do seizures last all night?
I know it does when choking, but Does a rat slober alot while in a seizure?
please help.im going to the vet soon, but my vet isnt very good with rats. He doesnt know much about them, i know from previous encounters with past rats.
i need to give him an idea of what is wrong with chester.
please give me tips on what i can do and which do you think he is doing.

Sounds like epilepsy, you should take him to the vet pronto even though you said your vet wasn’t helpful try another vet. They usually would prescribe valium or Phenobarbitol. Medications which have been known to dissolve those erractic behaviour.
Otherwise, just make sure he has plently of water and food available make sure he is eating and staying hydrated. With fresh bedding.
