 Pee problem

My oldest mouse Sierra, (her old husband named Mist(Sierra Mist)), has some sort of a
pee and water drinking problem.
She will drink half-all of the water in her water bottle, and then pee it all out.
I know it’s not the water bottle leaking because i have given her water bottle to my
other mice (and it didn’t happen to them) and switched her water bottles, her cages...Etc.
This mouse has out-lived 3 husbands (one of the she ate his head), 6 other male mice,
had her own litter of ten babies
and adopted 1 other litter, she has never shown any signs of health problems
before and is a healthy mouse.

 Pee problem

That sounds like a urinary issue to me... possibly a renal or kidney problem. Drinking excess water and peeing it all out can’t be good. I would either A. take her to a vet, if you’re attached, or B. Cull. Passing that much urine right after drinking is not good.

Are you sure the water bottle isn’t leaking...?
