About Trent

Trent was born in my fourth Brandywine litter, and was one of ten littermates, four girls and six boys.

Trent is named after the River Trent, a Derbyshire river, to celebrate my eldest's recent graduation from Derby University.

Weight data on all our ratties


10th December 2011 - Losing weight fairly steadily and looking old.
3rd January 2012 - Heat tilt. High dose Clavaseptin prescribed for 10 days.
4th February 2012 - The head tilt is finally going. I thought he was going to keep that!
14th March 2012 - We've had six weeks of ear infections and tilts on and off, tried Clavaseptin, Convenia, Tylan. He now looks like he has a permanent splitting headache, he's fluffed up and his ear is runny and smelly again, so I had him put to sleep.


Steady and loving rat. No problems.
