That last one looks like an abscess to me, can't you get it to a vet sooner? You'd better try & seperate them for now,

Start your own thread in the appropriate section (ie health) & I'm sure more people will look & reply ~wink-smile

It's a large abcess, and while it does need dealing with ASAP, if they are eating ok, then a couple of days more isn't going to do much harm, though it will be very uncomfortable for the little guy! Needs slitting or lancing and emptying, then rinsing, and then you'll probably get prescribed some anti-biotics (or they'll just get given a shot) and advised to clean it with some form of antiseptic a couple of times a day for a week or so ~thmbu

Agreed with Neil about the previous few posts...

On a happier note, I've found someone who is coming tomorrow to pick up the two larger RES pair!! ~dance They are going to a wonderful home, 300 gallons all to themselves, they'll love it ~fn-hdbng That just leaves the YBS and the little RES to find homes for, I'm hoping I can find a way of keeping those two though, I'm rather attached already ~wsltng
