Analgesics provide relief for moderate to severe pain. Narcotic analgesics require a prescription from your vet. Some of these medications can be found in combination with non-narcotic drugs such as acetaminophen, aspirin, or cough syrups. Use caution when giving your rats these medications and use them only as directed by your veterinarian as they can cause serious side effects when used improperly.
