Hello! This morning i found one of my mice (dandelion) in the middle of the cage, hair puffed, eyes closed and laboured breathing. Upon picking her up she was quite cold, her tail was un-responsive and to be honest i thought she was on her death bed as she was the exact same as Bonnie who sadly didn't recover. I warmed her up with a heat pad and fed sugar water just in case it was torpour (even though my room is not cold and none of my other four mice were effected,) and this worked wonders, back to herself, eating climbing ect ect. I come up to our room and found her in the same state as earlier (i warmed my room up after the first scare to ensure it wouldn't happen again) i have repeated the same thing as earlier and shes perking up again. No vets around me are open until Monday (at which point i will take her straight there) so i was wondering if there is anything i can do to keep her stable/ any idea whats happening to her?? Crying or Very sad

I would see a vet when you can (ASAP, really), but until then I'd keep part of the enclosure heated with sugar water available at all times. If it's helping her I would stick with it.

Is this a case of low blood sugar?? An insulinoma can cause hypoglycaemia. Did you make it to the vet with her? Any news? @Spiceclan
