Tonight we have sad news to deliver. Jax the rat passed away. Jax arrived a little over 4 months ago in severe respiratory distress. he was open mouthed breathing and lethargic/limp. His previous owner was unable to afford vet care for him. After multiple vet visits, antibiotics, nebulizing and humidifier treatments, Jax improved. He was only able to improve to a certain degree. The vet let us know that due to being left untreated for too long before he arrived at SP-BH , his lungs were left scarred. His quality of life was still good, he had energy, an appetite and loved attention. We continued his treatment for the four months. He was a strong little boy. We will miss his love and tiny kisses.

Watson's surgery was a success. Her bottom and top incisors have been removed. She arrived back at her foster home a bit groggy, but she quickly sprawled out and rested. She received some Metacam to help her with pain. We are concerned that she hasn't eaten yet. If she hasn't eaten anything by tomorrow we will contact the vet for help. Hopefully we won't have to go through the regimine of getting critical care food into her. We would like to see her start eating without any possible stress. She has been though enough already.
