FTFA, and referring specifically to mice: if the goal is to ease or extinguish fearful emotional memories like those associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, alcohol may make things worse, not better.

Mice literally can't drink to forget. Poor bastards.

I'd hate to be able to remember where I'd be if I couldn't drink to forget.

A) Because it's nearly impossible to find shot glasses that small?
2) Lack of thumbs?
iii) They're hipsters that don't drink that low-grade, name brand swill?

Surely there's an animal that's more well equipt than a mouse to hold the scientist's liquor.

Oh, the liquor was spilled on the bar room floor,
when the bar closed up for the night,
and out of the corner came a little mouse
pale gray in the cool moonlight.

he licked up the liquor that was on the floor
and back on his haunches he sat,
and all through the night you could hear him yell:

Well, they brought on the cat and they had a little spat,
and the cat ate up on the mouse (chomp chomp)
and the moral of the story is:
You can't have a drink on the house.

I once heard that mice can't burp, so making them ingest beer will eventually kill them.

Give them a chance to build up their tolerance. Maybe start with some sweet liquor and work gradually work your way up from there

I had a pet rat who loved hard alcohol. Straight vodka seemed to be her favorite.

Man but I picked the wrong job.

"I'm bored. What do you want to do?"
"Well I've got a bottle of tequila and a lab full of mice, so..."
