Question sick mouse help please

we have four mice in our cage and one died yesterday. one i thought would not make it thru the night either, but she is okay this morning except for the fact that it appears that her entire rear left side seems to be not useful to her.

she lays on her left side and slides around and wiggles and twist around the cage (i separated her last night to her own cage).

she has an appetiate because i gave her food and she found it on her own today and ate it, sat herself up the best she could and ate a few pieces she found. then i had my hubby hold her and i offered her the water bottle and she licked off my finger the water.

i don't know what to do with her tl help her not to suffer. all of them are atleast one year old.

any suggestions helpful, thanks, debra



can a mouse have a stroke???

I would take them to the vet asap. And yes she probably had a stroke. All you can do is wait and make sure that her needs are attended.

I'm sorry she didn't make it. I'd still take the others to see a vet in case it was something contagious. A check up is fairly inexpensive and the vet will be able to tell if they got sick from the other two.

thanks everyone, i (we) really were sad when she passed. i was scared to actually tell my daughter, she kinda took it 1/2 bad, she left the room and then came back a few minutes later, she is a private type of person, sooooo.... but the rest of looking healthy.

however, i switched to bottled water for ALL the pets, we just moved a monthy ago and people have been telling me that the tap water here in palm coast is chemical city.

plus my dog has been a bit odd too, so switched to bottled to be on the safe side, that is the only common thing between all the animals that i can think of.
