"I have a question about my pet mouse. She is almost two and is suffering. Very recently she started having breathing problems, she has a weird squeak more like she is having trouble breathing so she makes this noise. The thing is at night she still runs on her wheel and she rolls very actively in her ball. But I noticed her tail seems to have a rotted spot. In fact a bit of it fell off. I didn't squeeze or damage the tail, so I can only think it got hurt when on the wheel or it's just part of her recent problems. I clean the cage each week and was feeding her about every two days. Only now she won't eat anything, but sunflower seeds all the rest of the mouse meal goes to waste. I know mice only live around 2 years and after reading the info on this site it doesn't sound like she has a cold and her cage is always clean I wash it out if it smells or every two weeks and make sure it's dry before putting her back. She doesn't have sniffles and I have moved her to the warmest room in the house since the breathing issue. For a while it looked like she was getting better, but these last two days I've realized she is actually getting worse. Her breathing is worse, her eating is way cut down, and it seems like she's loosing weight. If anyone has a suggestion please reply. I purchased her in Feb. 2009, so I am thinking it is old age and that she's just dying, but maybe there would be something I could do to make her more comfortable?"
