So I saw someone using Conntraceptol (a birth control mouse food) with pet mice to be able to house mating pairs together after breeding. It seemed like a nice alternative to neutering and less dangerous. Has anyone tried this stuff? I was certainly curious about it.

Was it Creek Valley Critters? If so I trust that person a lot. Also I'm going to start using contraceptol as a pest control because it seems a great idea. If you're okay trying things out I'd definitely try it. It would be an awesome thing for males so they can be housed with females without being neutured

If you do want to try it, be sure to do it with two mice that are genetically compatible so you don’t end up with malformed pups, meaning do this with ethically bred mice. I would definitely discuss this with an ethical breeder before buying/attempting.

Oh this is a really interesting topic, I've never thought of using contraceptol before in domestic mice. If anyone does use this with success be sure to keep us up to date, if it works well without any issues associated I might be interested in using it for future mice.

I've heard of it! Personally I've been a bit more wary, as I doubt long term studies have been completed for pet mice and it may be carcinogenic or something of that sort in the long run. I'm also be worried about it failing, since the dosage control is non existent and it could lead to a pregnant senior female down the road. Perhaps a breeder forum might have someone more knowledgeable on the subject? If it safely works, I'd be quite interested in it also. Sending boys to the vet always makes me worry.
P.S.
Some of Creek Valley's content is extremely helful for mousekeeping but some other practices in her videos aren't stellar, (housing mice with rabbits, housing mice and hamsters of different species all together) so your best option is to draw inspiration from her methods and also cross reference with other sources and mouse keepers.
