Mice and rats are capable of transmitting diseases through their hair, droppings, and urine while causing a great deal of damage to a home or business.
Mice have an interesting trait called Horizontal gene transfer. Mice are able to reproduce with other species of mice and pass on a gene that’s poison resistant. It took mice about 10 years to become resistant to the common poison Warfarin. When a mouse is poisoned it’s possible to be caught and consumed by predators, including family pets. In turn, the predator (or your pet) can become poisoned, making an emergency appointment at Gem Veterinary Clinic necessary.
