dear Grace.

i am so sorry that this has happened. this is the exact same thing that happened to my 7month old female mouse. She was losing wait extremely fast and would not drink or eat anything. she couldn't move around a lot and the had lots of scratches on her face.

if this is what has happened to your mouse, take him to the vet. i know moneys tight but that is tho only way that something might happen.

my mouse had an arched back. we went to the store and got some parasite medicine but that did not do anything. it turnout it was a parasite, but one that had no medicine.

A few weeks later she died in my hands. She had a parasite with made her scratch herself to....... death.

I am so sorry about this but if there is hope take him to the vet. They might be able to save him. i am sorry that the is not home treatable but if you really want something, use New Zealand honey. I am truly sorry.

I have had mice for 40 years (since I was 5!). I raised them when I was a child but now I keep all females, and never fewer than three so that if one dies the others are not devastated, because they have each other.

I run Rats and Mice are Awesome on Facebook. The official name is Rats are Awesome.
