Inner ear infections

with permission from Carole Nelson of LilRatscal Rattery

Inner ear infections are common in rats. They may be caused by mycoplasma or a secondary bacteria. It is a serious infection and causes inflammation in the inner ear, affecting the rats balance. It causes the rat to hold his head tilted to one side. Without proper treatment from a vet it will advance till a rat starts rolling over and over and can even cause facial paralysis. Early treatment by your vet can prevent serious damage.
