Grahams appointment is tomorrow at 10:30 AM.

Is it a bad idea to bring Garcia a long just for emotional support? I'm not sure if I'll have her seen, too, but I was thinking of just taking her along for support to Graham anyways. Like a way to keep them both relaxed and comfortable.

Thoughts? Bad idea, good, or what? I know Garcia is an easily stressed out little mouse but I'm not sure if I'll have her seen too. I forgot to ask what the price would be to see both. I have noticed some "tft" sounds...no nose wiping or clicking or anything so not a reason to panic but maybe Graham would appreciate the company.

Do you bring travel buddies?

When going to the vet all cagemates should be brought with the ill mouse, separating them for a longer time can make them hostile upon return home.

Honestly I never have, I've always just taken in the mouse with the problem. But I haven't dealt with a contagious illness with them so far. Never had a problem reintroing after but that may be a concern, especially for newly introduced mice. I don't see a problem with bringing cagemates along though, if you think it will help lower stress.

I don't usually bring the other mice, their cage is large and taking all of them in a small carrier would be more stressful for all of us than taking just the one. I've never had trouble putting the mouse back home as long as its only been a few hours. But I dont think having a buddy would hurt, either.

To be honest, if I took one of my girls to the vet, I wouldn't take her cagemate, either; I feel like that would be unnecessary stress on both of them... as I'm sure car rides aren't easy on the little critters.
