The ABC Homeopathy Forum
veterinary - pet rat respiratoryI'm trying to find a remedy for pet rat with, well, cold. Symptoms are:
- it began with the onset of colder, rainy weather
- cold aggravates, warmth ameliorates
- occasional hoarse sound in airways from the mucus, but the rat doesn't cough, she usually sneezes and the rattling is gone
- no ocular discharge, nasal discharge seems normal (a bit wet nose as usual)
- probably lesions on lungs - small absceses, scars, inflammation - I don't know this for sure, but it is very common in rats with this condition, it is caused by an uncurable bacteria all rats cary (but some don't develop any respiratory ilness)
The rat is alert, in good condition, eating, sleeping, running as usual. She's on antibiotics from yesterday. But I would like to treat her with homeopathic remedies, the antibiotics being only acute support. I know Drosera helps with scarred lungs after TBC or lung inflammation. I also have a nosode of that rat lung bacteria. But I think I need to treat the current state first, and I welcome any suggestions - which remedy would be the best for the symptoms? I'm trying to find anything, but there's so many possibilities :

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I should add something about the rat - she's plumper than the other rats, not obese, but given opportunity (sweet and fat food), she surely would be. She's very friendly, very brave (jumps from places the other rats are scared to), and doesn't bear stress very well (she goes hysterical when visiting the vet or when somebody restrains her and does her what she doesn't like). She's not afraid of loud sounds or sudden movements as the other rats.
