    If there isn't a vet NEAR you, CALL an animal professor (aka veterinarian, lol) in any other location, even if it's another state. Ask them what you should do, and describe to them what is happening to your rat.

    Did you get her from a pet store (Petco, Petsmart, Petland)? If you did, that might be the reason she's so ill. Pet store animals are usually mishandled, mistreated, and neglected.

    I wish you and your furry friend the best. I'm sorry.
