Well the Vet visit went better then I thought and $200 later I have two prescriptions, and humidifier and a can of immune boost baby formula, plus two healthier rats.
They are to take the medication for 10 days and see the vet again on Monday at 7. She felt good about the diagnosis but feels they may have this issue their whole life since it has started so young. They have the first stages of respiratory infection. The "blood" wasn't blood but a liquid they dispense when ill or stressed. What a relief. Thank you to everyone who e-mailed me and commented me, I'm still worried, but I am a mom and that is what moms do.
Ratty dinner, Dandelion was the sicker of the two so I am glad she is eating a full dinner. Taking the meds is easy too since the pills can be diluted in apple juice and given through a syringe.
Their energy is up and a moment after the last picture was taken I had a lens full of noses.
