Spencer is my rat and he's about 5 months old, I fed him and his new buddy a few hours ago and I usually let them out to play for a few hours before bed. However, normally when I come in Spencer is usually running around the cage or crawling up it to be petted or for food. This time he was lying on the floor in a carpet square I have. His belly is sunken in and he was gasping and dribbling all over.
I am freaking out and I tried to grab him but he was hesitant and I gave him some fresh air which helped a little. I brought him to the bathroom and tried to help him but he did not want it so I snuggled him.
It has been about two hours since I noticed he has been acting this way. He also has a bite under his chin from his older friend (which I've now had separated for a while) and it was bleeding. I'm just really worried he won't be okay.
