mouse suddenly sick

Please help Sad My mouse started hunching over today and has not moved at all, I took her out of her cage and put her in a blanket but she's barely moving on her own. I thought maybe she was in labor since I do have a male mouse as well and the area under her tail is wet, but it's been about an hour and a half since she stopped moving. What's happening? How do I help her?

Is this mouse definitely pregnant?

Has mousie been extra-busy nesting in preparation for a litter? Is she double-wide across the belly? Those are two cues that birth is imminent. For a normal birth, she would seclude herself. Hunched and not moving around -- not signs of a healthy mouse.

Remember -- it is their nature to avoid, as best as they can, showing any sign of physical weakness. When you notice something obviously wrong, things are already past their ability to disguise.

Some of your description concurs with symptoms of wet tail. There is a lot of information on wet tail available on the Web, so I won't retype it here. Wet tail is nothing to wait around on -- if it is wet tail, she needs to see a doctor.
