• Diarrhea in mice is often caused by eating too much green vegetables. Foods like lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, etc. The first thing you should do if you notice your mouse has diarrhea is to eliminate these foods from their diet. If this fails to resolve the problem, or the diarrhea lasts more than a couple days, you mouse might have a more serious problem. If the diarrhea is accompanied by either skin rashes or sneezing you might have to take your little buddy in for a visit to the vet.

An herbal cure for diarrhea in both humans and mice is arrowroot, available at most supermarkets for cooking. A very small amount of this diluted in water can be used to cure most non-pathogenic cases. However, if it lasts more than a day or two, nothing is going to be able to give you the assistance an experienced veterinarian.
