Arsinoe Update

Post by CallaLily on Wed 06 Dec 2017, 8:23 am

My Arsinoe has developed a mammary tumor. Sad



I don't know her actual birthdate but my best guess is she's around 1 year old. Keeping her comfy and happy for as long as I can. Being in the early stages, it doesn't seem to bother her much at all. Hoping it'll be slower growing and she gets a lot more time to enjoy life.

I hate tumors. Worry

Aww, I'm so sorry to hear. No matter how quickly/slowly it progresses, she's lucky to have you. She's got it good, and she knows she's loved. I hope she gets plenty more time to spend with you Heart

I'm sorry. Tumors make me so angry. With any care in breeding and they could be eliminated. We love these little creatures and it makes me so angry that the quality of their lives doesn't matter to these rodent breeders.

I know you'll keep her comfortable and provide her with the best for the time she has left.

I'm so sorry. I didn't realize mice could have tumors. Worry

Aw, sorry to hear that. My latest mouse, Lydia (if you remember?), developed that, too, I believe; only she got a huge lump on her throat. She did pretty good for a while; acted pretty normal with the exception of being more active and longing for my affection. There were only a few other subtle things she did/I noticed that you could tell she wasn't feeling totally right all the time. I don't remember when I noticed it, but she definitely got it before Thanksgiving. I don't know... maybe she lived roughly a month before passing after she'd developed it? And you know, I didn't have her a year (maybe eight months), and I wouldn't think she was even one-years old. But I don't know.
But hopefully Arsinoe will live longer; you probably give your mice way better care, anyways.

Thank you, everyone.

@Darkly_Innocent @Blessed
She's my fourth mouse to develop a tumor (out of 12). The others only lived another 2-3 months after first noticing the lump. Twix had a mammary tumor too. Seren a tumor in her throat. Hazel had a huge abdominal mass. Unfortunately, it's fairly common in poorly bred mice.
