Mouse Insurance Alternative
Mice have an average lifespan of only a few years, yet they can be a huge part of the family. They also aren't always the type of low-maintenance pet that many people assume. They will need just as much love, care, and attention as any other type of pet.
Before you bring a mouse home, make sure to provide a clean and comfortable housing area for your new pet. While mice need some time to themselves, they're also social creatures that benefit from plenty of exercise, enrichment activities, and social interaction.
You may take your Mouse out of their house to play and run around in your house, make sure that you make sure that your house is safe for them to run and play and that you monitor them at all times. They are tiny and can easily slip into small spaces and get lost in your house.
You also need to have the time to care for your Mouse and clean their cage every few days and provide your new Mouse with proper nutrition. While your Mouse depends on you for good health, you can depend on Pet Assure to cover the costs associated with providing high-quality veterinary care.
