My rat's head is crooked and he walks in circles.
What's wrong?


Called "Wry Neck", antibiotics are definitely indicated. Treatment for respiratory should help, but some head tilt may always remain. Gentocin Otic Solution (ear drops) should also be used. Some rats never recover from head tilt however and often have trouble eating or cleaning themselves. Some rats suffer so much from it that it may be best to put them down rather then prolong the suffering.
