i just noticed one of my boys has a purple and distended penis. i have no idea what to do and i'm on the verge of crying. i'm scared and worried he might not make it to a vet, if i can even find one willing to treat a mouse. i'll be calling first thing tomorrow and seeing if i can get him in before i have to go to work. in the meantime is there anything i can do to make him comfortable? does anyone know what caused this?

i actually found this little bit of information about it, does anyone have experience dealing with this?

"Genital abnormalities. Evaluate the female mammary chain for masses, abnormalities around the nipples or irregularities around the vulva. Examine the male penis by gently sliding back the prepuce. A purple or distended penis during exam likely indicates a urinary obstruction, which is a painful and life threatening condition. Check the rectal area for swelling, trauma or prolapsed tissue. Swellings adjacent to the rectum in older male mice likely indicate cysts in the reproductive glands and are generally benign."

he is definitely a runt, here he is next to two of his normal sized brothers. when i looked at him today it looked like he didn't even have testicles, but i'm 99% sure he's male. he lives with his three brothers in a 10 gallon tank while i look for homes for them.

Looks like he might be more than a runt...might be what we call a peanut. It It sounds like a prolapsed penis to me. Nothing can be done from home, but hopefully he'll make it to the vet. It is, unfortunately, extremely painful.

it looks a lot like a prolapsed penis. i must not of noticed it when it first happened considering how bad it looks. i feel terrible.

ill call some places today and see if i can him in early tomorrow. hes still housed with his brothers who bicker with each other, should i seperate him for the time being? im not sure if that would cause him more stress then needed or be better. :/

I would separate him so he can rest easier... if he's in a lot of pain he doesn't need his brothers arguing around him. I hope someone will be able to help him feel better soon! Good vibes

I hope you can get the little guy to the vet soon. Poor thing!

Btw, it would be best to house all of your boys individually. Even brothers will fight which can lead to severe injury or even death. They may be doing ok now but things could take a turn very suddenly. It's just not in their nature to live with other bucks once they're old enough to be away from mom. Sorry if I'm repeating advice already given. I just wanted to be sure it was something you're aware of. Smile

i called a half dozen places and finally found one that will treat mice, his appointment is scheduled for 10 tomorrow morning. the place is a hour away and i have to be home at 3 to leave for work, so i'm praying whatever will have to be done will be done in time so he doesn't have to wait another day.

i really need to separate them, i get more and more worried about them being together everyday. :/ at this point i'm trying to give away the other boys for free but even then no one has been interested yet. i'll put the little runt boy in his own cage tonight once everyone wakes up, hopefully it will help him be more comfortable.

Poor little guy. Definitely looks like a severe case of a prolapsed penis, and if that really is the case then surgery is his only hope AFAIK.

the vet was amazing and has hopes he will be able to recover on his own in a few days. Smile he told me to help him along by lubing his penis with vegetable oil a few times a day and hopefully after some rest, he'll be able to get it back inside himself. its still swollen at the moment but while we were there, he was able to get it all the way back in for a few minutes so thats a good sign.

however hes very lethargic right now. he was a little lethargic when we got there but perked up after the vet gave him a shot of pain meds but he really went downhill on the way home. im hoping hes just tired and stressed out because of the 40 minute trip both ways on a bumpy highway. im hoping hell perk back up after some rest because he looks really bad right now.

I am glad you were able to find a good vet. I really hope he is right and that your little guy will be able to recover on his own.

the things we do for our pets!

poor little fella, I hope things work themselves out for him (with your help). it's possible that the pain medication made him a little loopy, hopefully he perks back up.
