Onni (my surviving rat) has a large bump on one of his flanks. He also seems to have lost weight. I need to take him to the vet. Real soon.

Good luck for Onni. I hope the vet can help him.

*Hugs* Let's hope it isn't too bad. Good luck!

If you're not unlucky, this is just either:
- a benign tumor: my 2,5 year old Lola has 4 of those, and we already took 3 others out with surgery, but decided to let them be because the surgery was worse for her health than the tumors;
- an abcess: in that case, it will be messy to clean and desinfect, but given the location (the flank - it's worse when it's the face) he should be allright with proper desinfection (Lola had 4 of those too, and they all went away).

Onni will return to the girl I got him from, who is by now an official veterinarian with lots of older male rats to keep him company. I hope you don't mind I give away your wheel with the cage? It's part of Onni's cage and it will be in the posession of a rattery/rat-asylum.
