Hi everyone
Thank you so much for your help, advice and concern.
I though better of handling before she was checked.
I went to the vets first thing yesterday. She wasn't egg bound at all, she has a poorly tummy and an infection with a raised temperature.
She has antibiotics, which I have to give her twice a day. She is actually proving easier to handle than I thought she would be (with protection!). After three doses of antibiotics she is a little brighter already.
I do wish she was tamer, her mate is fine, he came round very quickly after coming home, but she has never liked me!
I might sound like a pathetic novice, but I have to be very careful of not being bitten. I used to take in rescued rats, I was bitten so many times that my nervous system is very fragile. The dr told me that another bite could shut my nervous system down. Hence, I no longer have any rats.
So, all looking good the mo, thank god.
Thank you again.
