Cost to take mouse to vet?

Species: Other
Breed: mouse
Age: 6-12 months
About how much would it cost to take a mouse in for a check up?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

In my office an exam for a mouse is the same price as an exam for a cat or dog which is approximately $60.00.

It may seem like a lot for "just a mouse", but there are a few reasons for this. Number one, a vet who sees mice has to have special knowledge of these animals as not all vets are comfortable treating mice. So, you are paying for their expertise.

Secondly, you are paying for the appointment time that is booked off for the vet.

Hope that answers your question!
