would you have paid this??? *edit pic of the $77 "vermin" for the haters

Posted by   + Show Post

a month ago we rescued some rats from the SPCA... this weekend we noticed one had an infected cheek and his teeth were growing crooked.


So today I took him to the vet.. $77.. to have him put to sleep and his teeth trimmed.. antibiotics. It will grow badly again but next time they should trim it with clippers.. $17 every 6 weeks or so...


the alternative is $10 to put him to sleep...


would you have paid it?


here is my $77 sweetie.. Perry.. his life is worth it.some of you on here.. hmm... not so much.

here is the issue with his teeth.. not something gnawing will help.. his teeth grow mis-aligned.


But you will be happy to know atm he is eating soup and doing well.

i paid $15 every 2 weeks to have my rats teeth trimmed, we ended up putting her down though because they curled back and into her sinuses

No, it's a rat. I really don't understand people keeping vermin as pets.

No. Simply because it was going to be on going problem that sounds painful.

Yep, if he were my pet.

My brother had a pet rat and he was a great pet.

Yes. I have done that with my son's guinea pig. Rats are awesome pets too. I don't have them anymore because they have such short lives it breaks my heart. :(

NO!  But I would've never 'rescued' rats....those things are disgusting and I am terrified of them...... and anything in the mouse/rodent family.


they are actually more clean then an indoor cat
