About Zachary

Zac and his brother Zeb have come to Ratty Corner as descendants of a lovely boy, Wellington, whose genes I very much wanted to keep in my lines, but would have lost due to my does not wanting to breed. Zeb carries dumbo and Zac is dumbo eared, so they may also help to introduce this into my rats. Time will tell.

Health

17th December 2015 - Cloudy eyes diagnosed as 'Pannus', which is keratitis of the cornea. Treating with steroid drops.
Wednesday 30th December 2015 - Lost 125g, cage getting damp. Visited vet to ask about diabetes, but it seems the weight loss and increased urination can be side effects of the steroids.
Friday 1st January 2016 - Found my pot of urine test strips. Zac has protein in his urine, but no sugar, so it's kidney problems rather than diabetes. It may also explain the cloudy eyes. Decided to treat with Ipakitine and discuss with vet next week.
Thursday 28th April 2016 - Zach had seemed to recover from the kidney problems and had gained weight, but died in the cage overnight. Sorry you couldn't stay any longer, my little man. xx
