I'm glad that Lucky came through okay. Do lots of the rats from this rescue need medical attention? Judging from the conditions they were in, it seems like they might...

Thank GOD not that many of them seem to need a lot of vet care.
Yes, all probably have mites, and some are sneezy, but there's less in really bad shape than you'd imagine.
Lucky Louie LeRat was the only one in desperate need of medical care.
Many of the mice are scabby from fighting, but no dangerous injuries as far as I saw.

Actually, most of the rats are okay. Malnourished, and the younger females could benefit from preemptive spaying, but otherwise surprisingly well.

The mice are a different story; lots of them have skin wounds; some are missing all their back fur and are covered with sores. It's mostly due to severe barbering and fighting from the stress.

Just got the call from the vet, Lucky came through surgery with minimal blood loss and no complications.

So glad to hear this! :)

Apart from one forum that's down for some reason, I've posted on FOUR forums about this, and already someone else said they'd spread the word on other rat lists!
I did this all about an hour ago.
When the fifth forum is up again, I'm posting it there too.

More good news-
I saw Lucky today and he looked great. He has a number of staples and a shaved little rump. He's doing pretty good with his cone, and they're treating him to baby food and the like.
I'll get to take him back to the quarentine house in a few days, and on the 26th he can finally come home.

Lucky is doing amazingly well, he's the sweetheart of the vet office, followed closely by Blue, who one of the vet tech's will likely be adopting.

Sally and her babies are doing great as well. She's no longer biting me either, which makes me happy.  :BlueDumboSmile:
