It's my birthday today so we're celebrating another year lost to secondary education here in Southampton.
Hope you've been having an awesome day
I took one of my rats to the vet
We found a tiny lump on her last night, and rats are super duper prone to tumours, so we thought we should get it checked out sooner rather than later. The vet was really nice, he said that I was a good owner because I'd noticed the lump way before most other people would have done
Anyway, he said that while he can't rule out the possibility of it being a tumour, he thinks that it's much more likely that it's simply a slightly swollen lymph node due to a mild respiratory infection. He said that she'll probably be fine, but gave us some antibiotics to help her clear up the infection just to be on the safe side.
SO, all in all I'm in a great mood
Obviously it's not ideal that one of my pets is ill, but it's turned out so much better than it could have done so I'm happy!
