What diseases do Baby Wild Mice carry? and what can we feed it?

We found a baby wild mouse outside in the cold and Came in and nursed her back to life. We just need to know if they carry MAJOR Diseases. And also is feeding it crackers in soggy water ok?

They can carry many, many diseases. Mice and other rodents are some of the most common transmitters of diseases. I wouldn't know exactly what she might have, but she is likely to have parasites as well. Make sure you're always washing your hands really well after handling her, and you're not letting her run around outside whatever you're keeping her in.

I called a vet and they said not to worry about the diseases unless you have a really weak Immune system.
