What are some good foods to give sick mice?

Post by Illumimoe666 on Sun Nov 06, 2016 7:41 pm

Particularly for sneezes/colds. And what are foods that should be avoided for sick mice?

I don't really think there are any particular foods to up or avoid for sick mice. Just their normal base mix and fresh foods should do fine. You can always up their fresh food meals per week if you feel the need.

I will note that it is physically impossible for a mouse to get a cold. If they're sneezing, it's most likely a URI. You'll need a vet to treat it; no amount of fresh foods will replace a baytril prescription.

When I had a girl with supposed lung scarring/Myco, foods like apples, pears, asparagus, carrots, broccoli, and chicken/turkey or fish were recommended for healing lungs and to help keep them healthy and functioning well... mainly foods high in things like vitamins A, C, and D. Also keep her away from perfumes, air fresheners, candles, smoke, dust, etc and keep her in lower humidity (around 35% to 40%).

I agree, though, that if you think she might have a respiratory infection she needs to be evaluated by a vet so she can get antibiotics.

Thank you both <3 And I didn't know that mice couldn't catch colds o: I heard from places that it's possible. But interesting!
And she actually does have URI unfortunately, but she is getting treated for it Smile
