One of my mice has started turning in cirlces suddenly... He is constantly turning in a right hand circle, sometimes really tight, sometimes just a slight curve. He's eating and drinking, but he looks awful dizzy! Any idea what is wrong with him?

It will be an inner ear infection. They do respond to antibiotics but only if you can get them onto the drugs quickly after the onset, otherwise the head tilt can become permanent.

So I took him into the emergency vet, since everyone is closed today, and $160 later, we think its an infection, we have the antibiotics, and I have a few bloody holes in my fingers from a very unimpressed mouse. At least I get to stab him twice a day for the next week with a needle.
