|Comment||Wow, thanks so much. You have given me so much more information than the vet and a lot of reassurance. He is lovely and we see him with our other pets, but I don't think he did know a whole lot about the mouse's illness and he did say he wasn't really sure and didn't charge me for the appt, just the antibiotics. She seems a bit perkier today and has even climbed up to the next level, which she hasn't done since I got her, so hopefully she is feeling a bit better. Fingers crossed as she is a sweet little thing. I really did get the impression from the vet that she would not recover. I have found a vet who specialises in mice,birds etc. so she said to bring her in if isn't improving by tom as she would usually put them on more than one medication. Thanks so much once again. Lisa|
I can answer questions about raising mice and caring for them as pets, with knowledge from my 38 years of having fancy mice as pets. I have NO MEDICAL TRAINING and you should take a sick mouse to the vet; but if you simply can't, I will try to help you. I LOVE PHOTOS!!! I ALSO LOVE UPDATES! Let me know how the little tyke is doing later on, for better or worse, especially orphans. It also helps me to help the next person. Please first search first: use 'Natasha Mice Mouse' with whatever else your question includes.

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.
