Rodent Prince

I have a question about Prince, my male rodent dumbo rat

Hi so i have a 2 year old albino rat and he is making an odd gurgling/ squeaking noise when he breathes. Ive been doing some research on the symptoms and i believe that his symptoms match up with Mycoplasma... he even has the red stuff coming out of his nose... i just lost his brother and introduced a new male but they have been getting along great for almost a month now. I don't want to lose him so quick and I don't know what to do but im only 13 so i dont think i can afford a vet visit.

If Prince has a respiratory infection,the only solution is giving it antibiotics and for that,it is necessary to take it to the vet.

At home,you should keep it warm and you can buy some vitamines for Prince in a pet shop.

Kind regards
