Thank you so much for responding Vladina, its very much appreciated. I'm very sorry to hear about Mick, he sounded like such a sweetheart.
The tumor he had sounds similar to what my lovely lady Kayleigh (mouse) had. I took her to the vet on December 21st, she originally went for a bump on her back which we discovered was just from her going into her house or playing under the other "furniture" in her cage, so i was given some antibiotics, that healed fine, while at the vet i noticed that her tummy looked very bloated, the vet thought she might have just been backed up and gave me a yogurt medicine for her. It helped her no longer be backed up, but the bloating never went away. She kept active until the day she passed away, Kayleigh and Piper loved eachother, Kayleigh's last day I moved her to the empty cage so Piper would not keep disturbing her while she was slowly shutting down, Kayleigh passed away on December 31st in the early morning. I sat by her side and let her know her mommy loved her.
For Piper we got a different treatment at the vet and a different doctor, i think I'm going to request her for my mice from now on, she seems to know more about them since she also is a mouse owner. She looked over Piper and ended up taking her into the back and taking a blood sample. At first she really though it was just an abscess, but then she looked at the cells and found it to be cancerous. The medicine she gave Piper did help her for a while, the original tumor stopped growing and her fur started to go back to normal. And now she has two more lumps. But still seems happy, as i said before. She still takes her medicine twice a day, I had to start rubbing it on her treats cause she hates it by itself (it smells horrible!). I know she will eventually have to go, but I want her to be happy for as long as i can provide happiness for her, cause shes my little baby. Once she starts acting as if she is unhappy or in pain, I will know it is time.
