Young mouse found ?

Post by Justin Whit » Wed, 27 May 1998 04:00:00



A friend just gave me a young mouse that they found at there home and asked
if I could make it live.  I said that I'd give it a try but the mouse seemes
as though it had a couple of more days of weaning left.   I put some food in
the cage (lots of small seeds) and even a water bottle.  It doesnt seem to
be eating.  Should I start to force feed it wirth a eye dropper?  Or is it
pointless to try to save him.

thanks for any help!

You could try giving it softer food than seeds such
as bread dipped in milk or water.

Has it got its hair yet ?
try bread soaked in milk.
you could place a drop of milk or water on its mouth but dont force feed.
