I feel like all I do is post stressed out illness related mouse posts on this forum so for that I apologise!
My rescue mouse cake seems to be suffering worse than usual with her underlying respiratory infection that wont budge. I have been managing it for the last couple of months since having her with numerous doses of baytril and it seems to get less aggressive but never fully goes. Lately I have noticed that she seems to be struggling to breath a lot more than usual and she also doesn't seem to be making herself a nest to sleep in anymore which I don't understand, she used to create a little burrow within lots of hay and tissue paper she would create herself, but since cleaning her out tuesday she hasn't bothered, opting to sleep on top of a flat area of the tissue and hay completely uncovered, why do you think she might be doing this?
I just don't know how I can help her anymore because she hates to be touched and is very squeaky, all alone, and very ill. with no ears either :( she really is a sorry state! I'm starting her on another course of baytril as of tomorrow, but I feel like giving her all these different medications can't be natural for her, and doesn't seem to be helping for longer than a week anyway :/
Has she given up? :(
