It could be dandruff in her fur caused by the mites or something, couldn't it?

Not certain - I can find out, though. My sister has a removable humidity monitor for her reptiles so I imagine I can borrow it to check.

That's true - I never considered that.

The only video I could get was super poor - the lighting is bad. The clicking in the background isn't the mice, it's the camera - it makes a clicking noise when it films. Hopefully it'll be enough, though? The sneeze is around 0:20 but I don't know for sure....Also, excuse my talon-like nails, I play guitar so naturally..one side needs to be longer so I've just taken to being too lazy to bother with them.

I don't see anything to be concerned about. In addition to being adorable, your girl looks healthy and her breathing looks normal. Mice make all kinds of little noises. Did you see the video of my mouse, Penny, I posted? If not, here it is:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwCPQ2FgHs0

she went from never making a noise, to a full on talker overnight. of course, I thought she was dying of pneumonia. so I was delighted to find out that it was normal mouse chatter. I also have a mouse that makes a noise that resembles a sneeze a little bit but it's just part of her normal vocalization.

I really don't think you have anything to worry about. it doesn't sound like a sneeze to me, her breathing is normal, her fur looks healthy, she is a healthy weight and she is alert. Also, it has been going on for a long time, i would expect her eyes to be irritated, too, if it was allergies. Also, paper based bedding doesn't usually cause allergies. All these things combined makes me think you are dealing with normal mouse noises.

You could go back to nice, soft paper bedding like kaytee clean and cozy, it's fairly low dust and much softer for mice to play around in.

I agree she looks really healthy Smile I wouldn't worry about it. Just keep an eye on her general health, as you would do for your mice anyway.

Just like with people - it is normal to sneeze sometimes, and some people sneeze more than others. Maybe she has a sensitive nose. But if she had an allergy or a respiratory infection for this long you'd expect to see other symptoms by now.

Good to know I have nothing to worry about. However, I think it is a sneeze of some sort as throughout this whole ordeal, if you hold her up to your ear, you can hear the breathing (which I don't think is normal?), but even so, I guess you're right; it would've been worse by now if it was something to be worried about. Glad to know she's healthy!

Phew. I'm glad. It'd make sense that her nose is just sensitive, considering she does it most when the cage gets smelly or dusty.
