Unhappy Please Please help if you can

Please Please help me if you can. I think my mouse has URI and I am wondering if they can pull through on their own? Also how long can a mouse live with URI? My baby has been panting for a little over a week now. I am so scared. What should I do about my other mouse that is with her?

Thanks so so so so so much in advance! I really appreciate it.

No it needs to go to the vet and get antibiotics, its really not that expensive. She won't get over it. It is like asking you to get over pneumonia on your own.

Kendalle is right. A URI isn't like a cold, they can't get over it on their own. She needs antibiotics prescribed by a vet. Don't try to buy the medicine without a prescription, only a vet can tell you which kind, how much and how often to give a mouse medicine.

You can leave her friends with her as well, as they have already been exposed. They will all be happier.
