Did you feel any tumors on your guy before he died? Did he die at the vets?

And yes, rats in general are very suseptable to tumors. October 31 at 2:04 pm #396488 ratbrat21Participant I’m sorry to hear about your lose. Yes rats can get tumors really easily! And especially at that age. Author Posts Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
