I have read that rat's cannot burp and if they consume large quantities
of gassy food/liquid, they kind of bloat up with gas. Although not
lethal this is supposed to be rather uncomfortable and should this
happen to your rat, you should gently massage its sides to stimulate a
ratty fart to expell the gas.
I have let my rats have a nip of soda every so often, I am very happy
that I have not had to face such a situation.

Thanks.  :^) I was wondering because I've seen ours doing
something like that, but wasn't sure what it meant. More info
would certainly help satisfy the curiousity that caused.  :^)
