Sick mouse, help!

362 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  razibpaul126
I have a mouse about 4 yrs old. Found him in the barn when he was first born. Noticed a knot on the inside of his back paw. It's about the size of a dime. He looks sick in his eyes. Have rescued and cared for lots of different animals, and raised Mr. Jack this long with no problems, but I don't know what to do about this and not sure what it is. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Mice don't vomit, but can have severe diarrhea. Dehydration can kill a mouse or other rodent in less than 48 hours!! And mice do not have the same complex minds as we do, they can't be made to understand that if they have diarrhea they need to drink and keep themselves hydrated. More than likely, a mouse will not eat if it is ill.
