Do Pet Mice Need Regular Exercise?

Regular exercise is one of the basic needs of pet mice. Like other pets, mice benefit from regular physical and mental stimulation. Many pet mice are overweight or obese because their owners tend to be generous when it comes to giving food and handing out treats. A regular exercise routine will give them positive avenues to release excess energy and/or shed off excess pounds.

One of the best ways to encourage physical activity is installing exercise wheels, which can give your mice hours of fun and stimulation throughout the day. Remember to get a bigger wheel so your pets won’t have to bend their backs while running. And make sure that it’s made of solid plastic because it’s much safer than exercise wheels that are made of wire. Your pets’ small and delicate feet can get caught between the wires and become injured.
