Hi everyone, I've just recently joined this forum to seek some advice from the general 'mice' community =]
I am the owner of two mice, both female, around four months old now. One of them, a white coat mouse, is looking a bit ill at the moment, and I am unsure on what is wrong, and whether or not it is serious enough to go to the vet.
I came across this thread while looking help, and the signs seem the same. A quick summary:
-> She is not very active anymore, compared to her usual state. She is the more timid one of the two, but now she just sits in her nest most of the night. I rarely see her come out, even for food.
-> When I pick her up, she just walks around slowly, whereas usually she would be quite curious on trying to get down.
-> She is getting a bit fat, especially compared to the other one (Pol)
-> I've also noticed her poo is watery and liquid state like. Is this indigestion or something?
In the other thread, the result was lice, so I've given them both and their nest a spray of erm, anti-lice haha that I bought at the pet store, last night. She still seems very low on energy though and I'm worried.
I'm only giving them staple food, just the usual mouse mixture and water. Any advice, including whether or not I should separate them, would be much appreciate,
