Do mice get bumble foot like rats can? I made my own cages out of wire mesh, I sanded everything good so it's not rough when I brush my hand over but the mice climb all over it. I'm worried about their little feet.:mad2:
No answer. I've never heard of specific cases of a mouse equivalent of ratty bumble foot, but I suppose some variation is possible? I know it occurs in other rodents.
If it were me, I'd provide solid surfaces for your mice in sections of the cage. That way they have a choice. I tend to prefer solid cages for them anyway, but I can't remember if that's a preference of mine due to their small 'escape prone' size, or if I read it as a something suggested by a mouse care source.
