Blood Around the cage (Fighting or Bloody diarrhea!?)

Post by Riikchu on Sun Jan 22, 2017 10:09 pm

I found some blood on their ladder next to there food bowl, they dont seem injured but I dont know why there would be just blood on there, nowhere else only on the ladder
Did they fight? I still can't pick either of them up so I can't do a full check on either but I managed to look at them and they dont seem to have any blood on them
They are both females (Siblings)
Is this a sickness?? I am very worried

UPDATE: They seem to be both fine, was it just a fight? Where did the blood come from if I cant find any on them???

I suggest giving them a second, very thorough look. Funnel them into paper towel/toilet paper rolls to get them into your hands. Even scruff them if you have to.

Keep a very close eye on them. Keep an eye out for fighting and on their bowel movements.

They're both sleeping together right now, I'm going to check on them both right away when they wake up.
I'm very worried because I'm not going to watch them tomorrow because of school and no one from my house is able to stay home

If it was a fight, the wound just might not be noticeable. My Clover bit Blossom once when I was doing introductions, and I picked her up and she was bleeding in my hand for a few seconds, then it just stopped, and there was no wound or anything, you couldn't even tell she had bit her. So it's possible something like that happened, but I'd just keep a close eye on them.

Okay, thanks. They seem to be calm and haven't fought at all today but I'm still watching them in any case

The most common areas that mice bite each other is on the face, back, tail, butt/genital area. So check there first. Let us know if you find anything else concerning.

You're positive it was blood? You didn't give any fresh fruits or veggies that could explain it? I ask because I recently had a scare with my chinchillas... I thought I saw blood but the peed on a single dried hibiscus petal which ended up looking like blood. Mystery solved! So, just thought I would throw that out there.

This sounds very strange. Mice are too small for you not to notice any substantial injury. I suggest you place a camera near their cage to see if they fight when you are not around.

I think I might have found out, because I found blood in there den as well yesterday.
We had a mite infestation on our hamster, they might have been scratching because the blood was only in specific places.
They both got shots including my hamster and are getting there cage cleaned out.
