Your Pet Mouse’s Diet
Your pet mouse has a high metabolism so he needs to eat often. Each meal may be tiny considering your mouse’s size. He may only need a tablespoon of mouse pellets or seeds daily. Enhance your mouse’s diet with fresh greens and hard vegetables since these foods help keep his teeth trim. However, limit the fresh vegetables you feed your mouse so he doesn’t get diarrhea. Too much food could lead to obesity. Control portion sizes and schedule time outside the cage for your mouse run around and exercise daily. Supervise your mouse whenever he is outside the cage. Your mouse is somewhat nocturnal so he will have distinct awake times throughout the day. Feed your mouse his largest meal at night to help him sleep better at night. Hopefully this will prevent interruptions to your sleep. Contact your animal hospital Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to learn more.
