3376. A pet mouse is very itchy in the face and above the neck. Why?

Dec 20, 2018

4 days after removal of 9 warts by Dr Daniel at Toa Payoh Vets, the owner sent the pet mouse for boarding, asking the operator to apply the medication (oral, cream, wash, powder). The mouse felt very itchy and as you can see, the skin above the neck became bald. The skin below the left ear was rubbed bald. So was the right side of the nose, making it red.

It is best to ask your vet to hospitalise the pet mouse for at least 7 days as nursing can be properly done.

Owner said the inflammation is much less and was satisfied. Itchiness is lesser in intensity.  He wiped the wound with clean plain water daily using cotton bud. The mouse does not exercise nor enter the small houses.
