Bald circle around both eyes

Post by Laluna on Mon 10 Sep 2018, 2:29 pm



My youngest female called ‘Lenno’ (born 25 june) has a bald circle around both her eyes. I see her scratch on that area sometimes, not very often. Her eyes itselves look normal, no fluid or infection. I have allready treated her with ivermectine spot on and there is no Improvement at all. Before the bald circles appeared she went through quite a bit stress. She was bullied by 10 other young mice to the point that she slept when others where active and only appeared when the others slept. I removed the 3 biggest bullies and even changed their cage and finally the group of 10 stabilized and Lenno begins to life normal. So i don’t know if the local baldness could caused by stress? Does anybody know what causes this symptom and how to improve it?

Thanks in advance!

I’m not sure but I had a mouse that was the same coloring with the same “bald” appearance around the eye. I always thought it was just more noticeable in her coloring and didn’t think it was a health concern. I could be wrong though. Confused

If she was badly bullied, it’s possible she was over grooming herself from stress. If that’s the case it should grow back in if things are going better in the group.

Hi Callalily,

Thanks for the answer! If it’’s nothing to worrie about would be great news!
Honestly, at first i thought nothing special of it and saw the same thing often on pictures of dark coloured mice, though i asked the breeder she came from and and i showed this same pic. she told me
It’s not normal and advised me to give her an threadment against lice. But i refused because there were no other symptoms. After a few days i kept worrieing about it and did gave her a threadment (without succes) because it was not working i kept looking for information and the breeder won’t help me asnymore because i refused to take her advise. I called my vet and he don’t even know how petmice look like! So i’m glad i found this forum.
The group is doing perfectly well at the moment, they are all very sweet and ‘Lenno’ begins to develope some positive dominant features.
