Picking Up Your Mouse

Picking Up Your Mouse

Your pet mouse is pretty sturdy but he could be injured if you handle him roughly. He could even die if you drop him. Thus you need to learn to pick up your mouse properly. Ensure that your mouse is comfortable with you before picking him up. Sit by his cage and talk or sing to him softly. Drape your hand in reach for him to explore. And try hand feeding him. Once you are ready to pick up your mouse, act quickly and efficiently. Use one hand to scoop your mouse up from underneath and cover him with the other hand to keep from wriggling away. Be prepared to put him down on a safe surface rather than dropping him. Never pick up your mouse by a limb, the scruff of the neck or his tail or you risk injuring him. For more information, contact your Aurora, CO veterinarian.
