Pet mouse abscess

Upper Darby, PA

#1 Oct 22, 2012
I need some help. My daughter has a small mouse named Spice (Sugar passed about 6 mts ago). This morning, she noticed what appears to be either some sort of abscess OR an open wound from scratching on the back of his neck area. She is very upset. Spice is about 2.5 yrs old, so he's a senior, I assume. I can't seem to figure out how to post a picture.

At first I had assumed it was an abscess or infection. HOWEVER, we are currently treating our dog & cat for fleas, so then I thought that maybe he had fleas and just caused the injury by scratching a lot(?). As I was taking the pictures, i DID notice him scratching near the wound. Anyone who could provide ANY ideas/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your time...
