    if it bled alot that is good, washes it out. I would clean it well, disinfect it and call your doctor.

    Pet mouse or wild mouse? I had a hamster bite through my finger to where you could see the two teeth wounds from the top side of my nail... he was a pet though and I just washed it off... not sure what you should do if it was a wild mouse.

    Is this a wild mouse or one you have as a pet?

    Edit: Looks like I was thinking the same as you, silkie, just a touch slower. [​IMG]

    I have been bit by a wild mouse before. You need hydrogen peroxide. Make sure your finger hasbeen cleaned then use it then bandage

    We arent doctor. We cant safely give out human medical advice.....just to be safe, I would call your Dr. tomorrow and just leave a message or speak with a nurse. I am SURE you are fine, but cant take that chance. Wild mice (if it is wild) carry diseases that are zoonotic.​

    if it starts to get infected after a few hours then got to the hospital ASAP. I hope you are ok though and keep us updated
