Kudos to this young couple for showing a little RESPONSIBILITY towards their pet!
What would you suggest they do? Should euthanize their pet rat? How much should they spend to save the life of their pet? What if it was their dog/cat/monitor?
I know that not too many herpers would spend this kind of money on a rat (I know I wouldn't!!!); complications like this might mean the mother rat would be put down and fed off. But people SHOULD show this kind of responsibility towards their pet.
I have to add this: I am shocked and surprised by your callous comments towards one of your patients. This rat was someone's pet.
Don't mean to come off confrontational; just reminding you that uncaring attitudes towards our pets from the vet staff is unwelcome.
:working at a 24hr emergency vet you see\hear some really strange things but last night beat them all..a young couple brought in a rat that was have birthing difficulties..they decided to have a c-section done on the rat to try and save her and the babies (this cost over $400) while the procedure was being i couldnt help but think what new reptiles could be bought with $400..
