 Rattlesnake Feeding Question

So I have my first rattler, a Northern Pacific about 2 1/2 ft. long. It took one thawed mouse after just having killed and eaten a live one. Are thawed mice an issue? Does envenoming live ones aid in digestion to the point where feeding dead ones only might be a health problem? Those male mice - which I will try to avoid from now on - sure stink up the cage while they die.

I always feed l8ve mice..Well, almost live. I pop them on the ground and toss them in..I gI’ve them a smack a the ground so they can’t bite the snake.
