    Virus is no though out my small group!

    I have 5 mice and now 3 out of 5 are sick. They seem to have the same symptoms of illness as the first 2 that died( shaking, unable to open thier eyes). I'm now 100% sure they had a virus and now the rest are going to die off. I feed them kaytee bricks and they live in the ovo maze and main building which has a lot of hiding spaces( stress relief) clean water, a wheel. If this keeps up I might just switch to hamsters!.

    Feed them off & clean everything real good with bleach,start another colony from a different source,they are all going to die its a common microplasmic virus.

    Thins is kind of all my fault. I bought 2 from one store and 3 female from another. They were fine for a week or so and then 2 died. I bought 2 more to replace the ones that dides but didn't iso them!

    Re: Virus is no though out my small group!

    Sorry to hear this. It sounds like they are quite a bit sick. This is why quarantine is very important. I will always preach QT, because I do believe it is very important when dealing with rodents, just as much, if not MORE important than snakes.

    Also, Kaytee brand is pretty much over priced crap. Mazuri also sells small bags of their lab blocks at pet stores like Petsmart and Petco.

    None of them died yesterday and they seem a bit healthier but if it's the same virus by the end of the week I'll be seeing dead mice.
