My female mouse Shadow is not looking too good, she can't walk!
She can't move her front legs very well and very limited movement in her back legs, her tail is lifeless and can barely bend her spine, she can move her head, neck, mouth and ears just fine and still looks bright eyed as ever but she's been having to crawl and almost 'caterpillar' across the floor.
My poor baby is almost paralyzed!!!! :'(
What could this be?
She has been crawling about the cage and eating, occasional managing to wash her head and have a little scratch with her back leg but you can tell after any movement she does she needs a rest as if it's taken all her energy.
I'm calling the vets first thing tomorrow but will they even be able to do anything? I can't bare to see her like this, I was crying watching her try and get up the ladders and the poor thing got squashed against the side by the others before and she didn't look comfortable at all but couldn't move :(
Please tell me there is some hope for here, she's still only young!
