Is my mouse fat, pregnant or something worse.

Post by Emperor_Ham on Sat Jan 14, 2017 7:03 am

Hi

Something strange is going on with my mouse. For the last few weeks I noticed Paris getting a bit chubby. But earlier today, I noticed she got fat. I have 2 female mice, who can't escape their enclosure. Their is no way they can escape. So the thought that somehow a male mouse got in and out is crazy. So i'm thinking Paris ate something she shouldn't like wood or plastic.

I apologise if this post doesn't make sense. I'm very tired.

Looks up way too far to be preggo belly. My guess is tumors. Sad A vet can confirm.

If a male mouse would have gotten into your enclosure, I would assume that he would impregnate both of your mice instead of just one. It's possible that he wouldn't do that, but I still agree with CallaLilly, probably not pregnant and you should take her to the vet to confirm. Good Luck Worry

Oh boy, those look like tumors. Feel the lumps. Are they squishy, or are they very hard and rooted in place?

Looks like tumors. Some mice die within a few weeks, some mice live over a year with them.

I would go to the vet though as it might be some sort of fluid retention issue.

Lots of treats and attention is the recipe now. Make sure you've got a very happy mouse for whatever time she has left.

How old are they?

A tumour? My poor Paris. Will be taking her to the vet tomorrow, to see if anything can be done at this stage.

About 6-7 months.
