Does anyone know what's wrong with my mouse?

Post by Cutestpuffstuff on Sun 08 Oct 2017, 8:38 pm

I posted this earlier but now I have pictures and more information.
I noticed my mouse was limping the other day and I was able to get a good look at her foot and it looks like she's missing a piece of her toe. It's definitely shorter than the toe on her other side. It's a little swollen and not bleeding and I've been cleaning it every day. And I also noticed her other foot the nails are red and they don't look like my other mouse!
She's in a hospital cage by herself.
Also I've read that blu-kote can help prevent infection also Epsom salt soaks help too. Does that work?
I can't take her to the vet right away cause the only small animal vet near me is in another town. Obviously if it gets worse I'll take her but I just can't now.
Is there any antibiotics I can buy online?
I found a website where I can buy Baytril (enrofloxacin) online would that help?
Any info anyone has would be greatly appreciated!
Here's a link to the pictures.

My first thought is bumblefoot...? Her feet are definitely swollen. Do you have any wire platforms or wire floors in your cage?

I don't know about those two things you mentioned, blu-kote and epsom salt. I'm pretty sure it isn't possible to obtain any drugs like Baytril in any way other than a vet, or at least that is what the laws are where I live. Baytril must be vet prescribed. There is also, I believe, different strengths of Baytril, and unless you are a vet, you likely won't know what strength to use. It will be impossible to know how to dose it, too, as I think it goes by weight. Only a vet can tell you for sure what medicine needs to be used, and what dosage to give your mouse.

Definitely keep her cage simple, no rough/scratchy flooring for her comfort. Maybe just some paper towels or very soft paper bedding like Kaytee Clean and Cozy.

I agree, a vet trip is needed asap. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

So sorry to hear. Wish I would've known the extent of it the first time you posted, I would have also suggested vet care. Sad

Good luck with your new girl! We'd love to meet her when you bring her home. Please
