Thank you for being so caring to animals. If nothing is broken and just a few scratches, just make saline solution out with one teaspoon of salt in a cup of hot water. Wet the swabs with saline solution and clean the wound. Don't use the same swab everytime, you will increase the risk of contamination. Keep the mouse warm with old clean towels or cloths, put her in a place where she can't move too much until she recovers. I did that to my cat and she was wounded. We didn't take her to the vet because we had no money at the time. If the mouse acted strange or not eating and drinking the next day, you must take it to the vet. You have to go there to find out if it has broken a leg or not anyway.
