Mouse at death's door saved by honey!! Failure to thrive, shaking Empty Mouse at death's door saved by honey!! Failure to thrive, shaking

This morning my ginger girl was fine and a few hours later she was cold, shaking and not moving. I tried to warm her while I frantically Googled. I saw a 'ask a vet' article saying that they need more sugar than rats because of their higher metabolism and these symptoms could be caused by low blood sugar. I had been feeding her low calorie pellets because of the tendency to become overweight in gingers. It said to feed sweets but she was too weak to eat so I gave her honey in a dropper. Literally within 5 minutes she was almost completely back to normal. I hope this post helps someone else save their mouse. Love

Thanks for sharing! I feel like sugar water in a dropper would also work

Your mouse might actually have an insulinoma, so keep a close eye on her, she may need vet treatment if it happens again.
