Should I be worried about this lump  Image0

I just got my mice about 3 weeks ago and I'm super paranoid about everything Razz they both seem really active and healthy but the other day I noticed this little lump thing under Juno's neck. Maybe it's just a fat roll or something I haven't noticed until now? It's really not even noticeable when she's stretched out. (She's all squinty in this pic but it's from when she just woke up)

I took them both to the vet a few days after I got them and she had a clean bill of health, but I've never had mice before and I want to make sure I don't ignore something important.

Do they seem itchy? I don’t know if it’s just the bedding or the pic but her skin looks kind of flaky. Have they been treated for mites/lice? Or maybe it’s just dry skin? The lump could be from scratching. See if you can get a better look or gentle feel of it to see if it’s scabby or irritated there. If it looks infected you’ll need to speak to your vet again. Or if you think it might be a tumor a vets opinion is never a bad idea.

There’s more on mites/lice here: http://www.petmousefanciers.com/t17-itching-hair-loss-and-parasites.
