    Does anyone know of a vet knowledgeable about rats in Orange County CA or surrounding areas? My son's pet rat is lethargic & needs to see someone asap tomorrow!

    Thanks!

    Get out a phone book and start calling vets at 8 am and ask them.


    Good luck!

    Check your A&M Uni. In Texas, they separate into large animals and small animals and the small animal clinic is mostly dog/cat, but they sometimes have exactly what you need.

    Sorry to say our sweet little rat passed on early this morning. As always, it's nice to have BYC support -- what a great group of people. I will keep the Garden Grove vet recommendation for the future. Thank you very much.

    I'm sorry for your loss. Rats are just like tiny, tiny dogs. So much personality.

    As pets, anyway.
