My 5 month old mouse is acting lethargic, has one eye swollen closed, and has dried brown stuff coming out of her nose. She is also slow moving and overweight. I don't know if she's dying or if she's just sick and I'm freaking out. This is my first time experiencing this so i don't know what to do SOMEONE PLEASE HELP

You should definitely take her to the vet, as she seems to be very ill.

If you can, try and clean the eye out (gently) with a q-tip and some room temperature water and see if it looks injured, you may want to clean her nose as well.

If she seems cold, try to get her warm.

Ultimately if she's this sick, though, there might not be anything you can do on your own - she should definitely see a vet.

Okay- it's now 7 in the morning and she made it through the night... I don't know that she slept though since she's still out. The vet doesn't open until 8 so I'm just going to leave her alone until then. Mainly bc they aren't really used to me and I don't want to increase stress. I'm really worried that she might not make it through. She seems to have gotten worse. I can see from her nose that she's breathing heavily.

Hi, unfortunately she ended up having an upper respiratory infection and what the vet assumed was fluid in her stomach. While I wanted to take her home and for her to live as long as possible, I decided that her quality of life would be sacrificed. I made the hard decision to have her be put down Sad they made a little cast of her paw prints so at least I have a little part of her with me. I'm just glad she's not sick and in pain anymore, thanks for your concern though

I am so sorry to hear that

It is good that they are no longer suffering.
