Mouse scratchkng causes to bleeding

Post by Everess on Tue Feb 21, 2017 2:38 pm

My mouse scratches herself, she also scratches a lot around the ear that it is starts to bleed! It doesn't really drip down but it is super red! I'm sure that is blood. My dad doesn't really want to spend money on vet visits for my mice (smh) I will try to convince him if there isn't anything I could do, and speaking of that is there anything I could do? I'm really worried, she has a cage mate, and they don't fight, so I don't think it isn't because of her friend. Should I seperate them? They live in a 20 gallon tank.
I'm afraid it could be some rash or nervous reaction. One of her friends did pass away recently...
EDIT: I've tried checking for mites, lice, or nay bugs, can't seem to find any. How small are they?

You might not be able to see the mites. There's more info on them and other reasons for scratching here: https://www.petmousefanciers.com/t17-itching-hair-loss-and-parasites.

I'm sorry to hear about your mouse that passed away recently. This type of scratching doesn't usually require a vet visit, so read the link posted by callalily and let us know if you have questions Smile
