    Is it ok for a pregnant mouse to be running on a wheel?

    I would personally take it out hun, she needs to conserve her energy really.

    I would like to think that the mouse would know what she is capable of doing and know her limits, during gestation exercise is important. just watch that she doesnt over do it.

    Ive had to take out Pips wheel and only let him have it for an hour or two a day because he overdoes it so much that he wasnt putting weight on or growing, when the babies arrive the wheel will have to be removed for obvious reasons so wouldnt it be best to remove it now so it doesnt stress mum out when they are born.
