I'm hoping that some one can help me with poor Marx my little red mouse. He has had mites and been treated for such but won't stop scratching. He is spending so much time scratching that he isn't eating properly and as a result has gone from his lovely round figure (weighing at just over 50 grammes) down to an unrecogniseable hunched up and sorry looking sick mouse (weighing only 35 grammes) in about a week. He has pulled all the hair out under his chin and is obsessed with scratching his head so has very little skin left between his ears and on his neck so it is bleeding and completely hairless. He isn't even cleaning himself properly because he is scratching so much. He started chronically scratching last time he had mites but he was never as bad as this and even trying to distract him with yummy food like mealworms, or playing isn't stopping him from scratching this time. Can anyone please, please suggest what else I can try to do to stop him scratching and anything that I can do to help build his weight up a bit as I'm really worried that it's going to have a long term impact on his health ? I've even tried feeding him scrambled egg, baby food and porridge but he is stubborn and won't eat anything like this Any help is greatly appreciated!!
