Sedating a mouse?  Empty Sedating a mouse?

Post by :) Thu 20 Jan 2022, 12:04 pm

Hello everyone!

I need some opinions on an issue that I feel is important to address. For some time now one of my mice makes noises when breathing, I have an appointment for the vet next Monday because I am suspecting that these respiratory problems could be being caused by a mycoplasma, although it should not be so serious since apart from these sounds she is apparently normal. The thing is that my previous vet was always reluctant to sedate a mouse (because of the risks involved) but the current one gives me this option, open to my negative response. According to what she told me, it would be ihnalatory anesthesia, quite fast but with the risk of lowering the vital signs (this procedure would be done to be able to perform a pcr). I am now in that dilemma, where I need to know what is causing this to my mouse to give him the proper treatment but at the same time I am putting her at risk.

I just want to read some opinions on this or some personal experiences, I will discuss this with the vet and try to make the right choice. Also, I find this topic very interesting as respiratory infections in mice are very common.

Thanks! Smile

I had a mouse who had to be sedated at the vet twice. At first it was scary but he came out fine both times. It was for an abcess he kept getting. Lived to five years old. Died of natural causes.

Both of my boys were put under anesthesia for their neuter. I had no issues, but my vet does this regularly for a local breeder so is very experienced.

Thanks for your reply! I’m more relaxed now with this issue ☺ I didn’t sedate her but if she doesn’t get better I will consider it again.
