Sneezing or ?

Post by nenna87 on Thu 28 Dec 2017, 6:24 pm

So I noticed this morning that one of the mice seemed to be making a sneezing sound. I was in the room, and heard it a couple times. I watched the cage, and from what I can gather, it appears to be Lola making the sound. However, there is no movement with it. Normally, when they sneeze, there is some head/body jerking, and they will immediately wash their nose. Lola appears to be washing her nose, but there aren't any movements during the sneeze-noise.

I am a bit worried because we had an infection go through about two months ago which caused all three of the mice to get sick. They were on Baytril as well as Doxy for that, since the Baytril alone did not help. I questioned what type of infection it had been, but the only thing i really know is that it was likely not a mycoplasma flair up, since all of them had gotten it. It is possible they had gotten it from the cat, since about a week prior to them getting sick, the cat had been sneezing. However, the cat's went away on it's own.

We have also recently just got out heat back on, and it was colder then normal for them (although they seemed to be okay with the extra bedding/nesting materials). Also, while it was cooler, they were not as active, so she could have been making the noise before and I just not notice.

However, all three girls are very chatty, and I only notice the sound when she is awake. I also just cleaned out their cage this morning, giving new toys, etc, so it could be excitement. There is nothing in the cage thy have not been exposed to before.

I will try to get a video when I can, but right now she is not being very cooperative.

Oh, also wanted to add that all their toys were cleaned multiple times since finding out they were sick. I also sanitized everything (toys and cages) through boiling OR bleach once they were done the medication. Perhaps not needed, but everything should be bacteria-free. I also rinsed the bleach items so they no longer smell.

It isnt totally out of the realm of possibility for illnesses to become recurring in some mice. If the behavior continues, a vet visit might be in order?

This is what I am worried about. I will continue to keep an eye on her. If it continues and/or gets worse, we will definitely visit the vet.
