Rushed my rat Monkey into the emergency vet Sunday night and he got diagnosed with pneumonia. Common in rats and develops very rapidly. The vet said he has a 50/50 chance of surviving. He has refused to take his meds, eat, or drink. I keep trying to force it. He is now gasping for air with his mouth wide open and I am snowed in with over a foot of snow. The closest emergency vet clinic says they won't put to sleep a rat. I had such a close bond with this rat.
