My Latest Published Article

This is Ares and he's 3 1/2 years old. He also suffers from Hind Leg Degeneration, which means that his back legs don't work real well any more. Sometimes when a rat gets this they won't be able to move their back legs at all, Ares can still scoot his back legs a little but he drags himself around now, instead of walking. 

I wanted to help out other rat parents who might be dealing with this so I wrote an article. If you'd like to read it, just click on the link.

I hope it helps any pet parent out there who is dealing with this. Any animal can get Hind Leg Degeneration and it's good to know how to care for them when they can no longer care for themselves. 


  1. I always learn stuff while visiting. :)

  2. Know some dogs who had it, never mice though, interesting.

  3. poor guy, at least he can still get around some.

  4. Thanks guys. Ares still gets around a little and since putting him in a smaller cage, everything is closer to him, so he can reach it easier.

    A lot of different animals can get this, even dogs and cats.

  5. Sorry that Ares is experiencing this but sounds like you have done all you can to make his life comfortable.

  6. You're right, it doesn't make it any easier to know that he probably isn't going to last much longer though. I'm spending as much time with him as I can.
