While many people will cringe at the thought of having pet mice, Our thoughts are that they are extremely cute and no one will ever be able to make us think otherwise.

Young mice can often be a bit jumpy by nature but with a little bit of handling it doesnt take them long to tame up and bond to the owner.

Having two Mice is no more work than having only one and they can live in the same cage. Two rats will be entertaining to watch and will take some of the stress off of you in having to entertain them. Yes pet rats like to play.

Our Mice at petsville

Our Mice have not just been bred for colour and temperament, but have had different blood lines from around Australia to produce a stronger animal. Our Mice are not in bred. They will still have a short life span like all mice, but hopefully fingers crossed, breed out some of the common respiratory conditions and cancers. This is explained a bit more below. Our pet mice are also raised on Vetafarm Origin Rat pellets,petsville mixes, peckish, or selective pellets with fruit and veg.

Diet for the domestic Mouse

A proper diet is important for your pet mouse. Mice are omnivorous, which means they eat both plant and animal material.  Mice love food in general and will eat almost anything you put in front of them, savoring every morsel. Mice love junk food just like us. Try to keep their diet as healthy as possible. Stay away from sugar. There are many healthy treats that you can offer your mouse. Hopefully we can give you some ideas on how to add some variety in their diet, while keeping them healthy at the same time.

We hope this information will be of use to you in deciding what to feed your pet  mouse. Please remember to consult your veterinarian to determine the proper care of your pet. This list is only intended as a general reference – it should not replace the advice of your veterinarian.

Their dry food can be hung in a food dispenser or put in a heavy ceramic dish that won’t tip over. This prevents little opportunity for fecal (stool) and urine contamination of food. Fresh water is made available and kept free from contamination by providing it in water bottles available in store at Birdsville.  The tubes can become clogged with food debris, so they must be checked regularly.

Food consumption varies with the quality of the food offered, the age, health and breeding status of the individual, the environmental temperature, and the time of day. Mice tend to eat more at night, but day time feeding is also common. Water is best provided in bottles with, preferably, metal sipper tubes. Large square types with wide necks can be hung on the cages and are very good at staying on and easy to clean.

Having fresh water available daily is very important, as many pet rodents presented as “sick” could actually be de hydrated.
