Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in exotics and small animals.
The first thing I want to do is get the little mouse on a Probiotic. BeneBac can be purchased at the Pet supply. I suggest the gel form if you can find it. The Antibiotics, kill the gut flora that aids with digestion and is very important for the mouse. Next I would like to see you add some Bee Pollen and Royal Jelly which can be found at Walmart or a Health Food store. Open the capsules and feed with what every slurry you are feeding. I would offer a rat block for food and also feed a slurry of pellets ground finely into a powder and diluted with Pedialyte infant electrolyte replacer. The Bee pollen and Royal Jelly are high potency and will help with nutrition as well as increase the appetite. The slurry is a good diet and the Rat Block is the best nutrition for the health of the Mouse. I suspect that the Antibiotic, caused the gut flora to die off causing poor digestion as well as bloating and if we can replace the gut flora and get the proper nutritional balance, we may be able to help the little mouse.
