I'm new to the forum, brought here from another for other animals because I'm in desperate need of advice for my mouse. Timmy is around 1 year old and the past month he's started developing scabs on his back, we took him to the vet and had mite treatment and anti biotic because she felt the skin looked infected. Slowly, he scratched away the size of a 50p off his back, it scabbed up but then he started scratching it off, we went back and she gave us ointment for his skin, it made him freak out, he'd start scratching and running about like crazy and we just couldn't keep going with it, so we took him for yet another visit, this time she said do nothing... well it's a week now and he's even worse, he's lose fur all down his side and has two puncher wounds (he lives on his own) so very much himself doing it, he can't be touched because his back hurts and he twitches almost every few seconds.
Our 4TH visit to the vets will be next Saturday, this will be to see a specialist they've called in of small animals. If she can't help him, I'm stuck.
Scratching, hair loss, irritation.
Anti-biotics, mite treatment and ointment.
