Wild animals can carry diseases, and vets that aren't trained for wild life don't treat them. But, they wouldn't know a wild mouse from a domestic unless you told him...or it's very apparent from their condition. i think vets dont treat wild mice because maybe they bite when a human touches them Usually it runs under the jurisdiction of "Wildlife." If you look it up in the phone book they could give you some help.
