I have a male mouse who is quite active, seems happy enough and is eating, drinking and making nests quite happily. Recently I have found small drops of blood on his bedding and after further inspection he has a small red sore right on his bottom. Whenever he passed waste it seems to open up the wound but it doesn't bleed a lot. The wound will then seal until he goes to the toilet again. It doesn't seem infected as it keeps healing up and the skin around is clear and pale. I suspect the female he is in with has nipped him after he may have attempted to mate with her, though I haven't seen any mating at all. What are your thoughts? Will his wound be able to heal if it opens up whenever he poos?

Maybe take him to the vet, they might give him some antibacterial wash to keep it clean because if it does get infected it won't be great... Prevention is better than cure right?

Hope this helps, Sarah

Vet appointment for sure and separate him from the female.

It is very very likely they have mated, so expect babies. http://www.petmousefanciers.com/t43-breeding-packet

Thank you for the replies. He's healing nicely now so I'm very happy Smile Also the female's personality seems to have changed a little so I'm starting to think she may be pregnant at this point.
