Mice | Life Span

Filed in Small Animals, Mice

Mice are short-lived animals, which can be disconcerting to new pet owners. Some experienced mouse owners note that life spans vary according to ancestry and general treatment (proper diet and nutrition).

In reality, most mice live to see their second birthday. A few have been know to live up to three years. (One mouse is reported to have lived seven long years!)

Many parents feel that having their children experience the relatively short period of companionship and subsequent death of pet mice is a meaningful way to expose children to the natural order of life.

Irving Street Veterinary Hospital (San Francisco, CA) materials were used as an information source for this article.
