Today my mouse rainicorn is showing signs of respiratory infection, she is clicking constantly with her breathing. I just don't know what I'm doing wrong? Little tree Trunks passed yesterday and today this, I don't understand because rainicorn hasn't shown any symptoms at all until today.
her eyes are bright, she is eating and drinking and she is quite active and has always been the most active but her breathing sounds very laboured.
I can't get her to take any baytril though but I am going to try putting it on her rump to see if that works. If I lose another mouse I will start to question my decision to have them in the first place :(
I've had so much stress with them in such a short time of getting them. I am awaiting their new Alaska cage, which should help with ventilation if that's the problem but Tree Trunks has already failed to make it to see all the fun she could of had and that was a little out of the blue too.
This was a little bit of a rant but any tips or suggestions or reassurance would be greatly appreciated, on the plus side Cake my rescued mouse appears to have stopped scratching her ears so much and has been taking the baytrill. :|
