Injury or irritation around eye?  44118e10

Bubbles has always had some sort of irritation around her right eye, sometimes it’s less noticeable then other days but today especially it’s very noticeable. I don’t know what’s wrong? Maybe over grooming? Should I go to the vet? She doesn’t seem to mind or be in pain at all but it just looks like something is wrong. Sad

I would definitely take her to the vet, mostly due to the proximity of it to the eye. If the wound gets infected I can't imagine how short it would take for the eye to become infected as well.

I'm not sure if I would call this a hot spot, but mice do get itchy, irritated areas on their body when they're fed a diet too high in protein. For most mice sticking to about 12-14% is best, so if your diet is higher in protein than that that might be your cause.
She also could have just scratched herself, but just to be precautious Smile
