Itching Empty Itching

Post by fancymice on Fri 20 Apr 2018, 2:51 pm

Coconut has been itching, biting, and licking herself. She doesn’t do it all the time, but right now she’s been doing it for about 5 minutes. There’s no fur loss and no bleeding. I also checked her and i can’t see any mites or anything. Should I be worried? Or is this normal?

if there is no fur loss or bleeding she may be okay. but a vet checkup is a good idea just to make sure. mice groom themselves often and love to stay clean but if she is grooming herself 24/7 that could be a sign of stress. Is she living alone? and is she new?

She doesn't groom herself 24/7 just sometimes she does it for a few minutes straight. She lives with another mouse and I've had her for about three weeks.

in that case she sounds like she should be fine, but if she starts to lose fur or if there is any blood definitly take her to the vet Smile
