uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh i’m so mad omg!!! the puppy might have broken one of my rat’s legs!
i’m not sure yet if it’s broken but i read that ibuprofen will help with the pain so i crushed some up and put it in peanut butter.
she’s holding the leg up but occasionally uses it a tiny bit for grabbing (rather she lays the thing across the fingers)
how it happened:
the rats were climbing around on top (and in and out) of the cage and this rat was in the process of climbing out when the puppy jumped up on the door, squishing her. at first it was across the whole body but she managed to squeeze out but the puppy bounced and snagged her front, left leg.
i’m not sure if i should put her back in the cage with her sister or keep her in her own separate cage for now. being separated might stress her out too much.
