My mouse has a lump

Post by Razumouse on Mon Sep 04, 2017 9:57 pm

Recently I noticed a lump on my little girl mouse. It has grown bigger and it is very hard, and I tried moving it around but it is solid in place. She is still drinking but eating less, and isn't very active. I am nervous it is a tumor and I want advice. Please help!

I don't have any experience with things like this but my best advice is to take her to the vets to get it checked out.

I'm sure someone will chip in with potentially more useful advice and knowledge but that's mine for you!

I always take mine to the vet just to confirm if it's a tumor or an abcess. They can easily treat an abcess. With a tumor it's more a case of keeping her comfortable. Good luck with your little girl.

Thanks for replying, the vet said it's not an abcess. I'm trying my best to keep her comfortable, at least the lump is not growing much.

Mice seem to tolerate tumors very well, even though can grow to be very large. As long as you see her continue to eat, drink, and run on her wheel, those are signs that she still has a good quality of life. I had a mouse with a very large tumor, and of course she wasn't very active, but she would still make an effort to run on the wheel a little bit and would always stop to eat her special treats. So even though she slowed down, she still showed me that she had life left in her. Cherish the time you have together and keep her comfortable.

My mouse hasn't used her wheel for quite a while now. Sometimes she just sits on it, starts walking, then stops again. The lump seems to be irritating her. At least she's still eating and drinking. I am trying my best to keep her as comfortable as I can.

Does she have pain medication?

Unfortunately, no pain medication. She is getting worse and I don't like seeing her suffer, might have to euthanize her if she gets too bad Sad
