My sister in law has just been bitten by a mouse

15
Found 14th Jul 2009
She phoned me and asked me what she should do!

As I have no idea I told her to phone NHS direct and ask incase she needs a tetanus.

I just tried googling it, but couldn't find an answer - so knowing there are a few nurses on this site I was wondering whether it could cause harm?

get a tetanus to be safe
Poor mouse. lol

I'm not a nurse, but I would think she would be best to have a tetanus if she hasn't had one in a while.

you have to have one after a dog/cat bite.
get to hospital. its disease ridden vermin
she'll hopefully have kept up to date with her tetanus jabs like everyone else should
She phoned NHS but they are only taking emergency calls

So I found some info on the NHS website and have sent her the links on how to treat a bite. She might need to go to the walk in centre just to be checked. Always better to err on the side of caution

don't be silly....a mouse would bite cos it's scared!!!
Was it a pet mouse or a wild mouse? The chance of getting anything serious from a pet, home bred mouse is small, but a wild mouse, for me, would be a trip to A&E.

I used to own a pet shop and was bitten daily off stock mice and rats.
if it was this sort of mouse then i'd be worried, vicious little sods !

lol :P

Count herself lucky in a way...

I know someone who had their toe bitten by a mouse during the night.

Toe went numb.. and got eaten!!

Get it checked.. dont live in regret.
Hehe all these posts after I went to bed!

It wasn't a pet mouse - I think it was one caught by the cat - or should I say toiled with! And yes of course it would have been scared.

My sister in law was actually trying to save it.

Thanks for the response!
