"Hey everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me with Splinter, my 2-year-old albino male dumbo rat. He's always been very laid back and always hungry. But 3 days ago, I noticed that he didn't seem to have his normal appetite. 2 days ago I noticed that he had diarrhea and seemed weak, and his breathing is short and fast, but then I gave him a bath, cleaned his cage, and gave him a variety of foods and he started eating again and was drinking lots of water again. Well today he seems weaker and he's not eating/drinking very much again. He had some eye-crusties too. Can anyone tell me what these symptoms mean, how I can treat him, and with what? I feel awful, but I don't have the money to take him to the vet... I know there must be something I can do for him... Please help! Thank you..."
