She says she has had the captcha disabled, so the problem should be solved now. Hopefully people are able to join up without hassle if they try again.

@  Caryn : (08 July 2018 - 10:57 AM)

Ah geez, I'll see if I can reach Tails about it

There are people wanting to join the forum who says they received a message asking for a security code?

@  Caryn : (07 July 2018 - 05:49 PM)

Two of my girls over the years have had strokes. Both were still alive when I found them but suffering side effects ie: paralysis, loss of cognitive function. Sadly there is not much that can be done if they are very far gone, smaller strokes can be treated and rats can recover. Seizures are horrible. Mavdb had a couple of boys with issues, you may be able to find posts here on the forum.

You're not mad at all for wanting to help her :ratsad:

@  lollyh : (25 June 2018 - 04:33 PM)

Thank you caryn.yes i know you would.:-).i love her so much.i dont care about the cost.really i dont.even though everyone around me says im mad & just put her down. :bigeyecry: .no unfortunately i don't have an edgars account.

@  Caryn : (25 June 2018 - 11:43 AM)

Sorry you're going through that with your girl. You know I'd opt for the surgery, Dr O says he can do it and I trust him completely. I realise cost is an issue though. Do you have an Edgars acct you can pay with or can you sign a debit order with them? That's what I usually do for larger surgery costs.

@  lollyh : (25 June 2018 - 09:34 AM)

i have such a hard decision to make. :bigeyerat:

@  Caryn : (18 June 2018 - 08:27 PM)

@  Caryn : (13 June 2018 - 10:51 PM)

I've been lucky, using the "internot" address I've been able to access without the virus warning for months. But there was no one else around :ratsad:

@  raggedtoothg... : (13 June 2018 - 09:28 PM)

Just wanted to know if soy products are ok for rats. Like the Fry's sausages, patties etc. I am vegetarian and I am finding it a bit hard to supplement my ratties diets with enough protein

I've always steered clear of soy, simply because the online information seems to suggest that it can have its benefits but too much can be harmful.  But I'm sure small quantities should be fine.  Maybe discuss with a vet if you're concerned? :)

I've given organic soy milk for my boys, but I'm not keen on the actual food for rats because of salt etc. But as a once in a while treat wouldn't be a problem.

 

You can also give almond milk as a source of protein, but it's really not that necessary if you have the PTA or Snuggarat mixes.  There is sufficient protein in the mixes.

Sejaln I'm also a veggie :) if you eat eggs you could give them a bit of that or some unsalted cooked tofu?

We eat very little meat and our boys almost never get any either. Their dry mix and dinner veg have plenty of sources of protein so I don't think it's something you need to worry about too much as rats get older (young growing rats need more protein but this need decreases as they get to their full size).
