    My female fancy mouse had birth yesterday. Sad story short. She prolapsed and it’s pretty obvious she’s not going to make it. All ten of her pups are still alive is there anyway I can keep them alive if she doesn’t make it??

    A vet may be able to help with the prolapse if you can keep it lubricated. Probably your best bet for the babies is to find another female mouse who has recently given birth and try to foster your babies onto her. Failing that you will need to do some research online as to what replacement milk to feed them on and how often.
