Meet Nigel, a 2 year old male rats whose owners noticed that he had one testicle bigger than the other. After trialing some pain relief it was decided that castration would be the best treatment for him. Lucky we did as it turned out to be a cancer!
Both male and female rats can get reproductive tumors and in females they can get mammary tumours as well.
If you have a rat and would like to talk about desexing as a cancer prevention or any general health issues please call the clinic on 4655 0798.
Nigel is such a great rat and we wish him a speedy recovery.
