Personally...I'm a bit 'soppy' as some would say...I would at least try to operate, no matter how small the animal. the fact that an animal costs not very much should really, if anything, give more reason TO you've not already spent a lot on the animal. >_>
I think that life is life...and if something is BORN (pregnancy is different IMO) then it has the same amount of right as anything else...size of stature doesn't indicate size of right.

I hope that my stand on this doesn't change when I start breeding mice...I couldn't possibly breed for show anyway...but even if I did THAT, I would only ever breed as many mice as I could look after myself.

Having said that, I'm not likely to spend hundreds of pounds on a mouse. I couldn't afford to spend that on ME if I needed it!

Also...I'd always weigh up chances. If a mouse has better chances without surgery, even if there is a chance of a longer life afterwards...I wouldn't operate. It's not my life to take chances WITH.
