Male mouse, penis out

Post by LunaHyzen on Tue 07 Nov 2017, 6:03 pm

So my male mouse is breathing very heavily and laying on his side. It appears that his penis is sticking out and is very red. This is the second time this has happened, the first was October 28th. Last time, I got him hydrated and warmed up and he was fine afterwards. He's always had a slight waddle but he's had a harder time with his back legs than usual. I know he's dying and I'm sad but I want to know what is happening to him.
He is about 18 months old, just a guess.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm not sure what could cause these symptoms. Hopefully someone with more experience will help soon. I have a male mouse around that same age and he is slowing down and starting to look old. Sending you (((Hugs)))

A penile prolapse? Painful and uncomfortable, which would help explain his breathing and lack of movement. Sometimes it remedies itself, other times a vet can help you work out how to help him... whether that's learning how to put it back in (though it will often reoccur) or putting him down. So sorry you two are going through this! My best to you both. Good vibes

It sounds a bit like the penile prolapse my previous boy had - I was recommended to get him straight to the vet if it happened again so they could help him get it back in as it could be life threatening.

I agree with the above. A trip to the vet is needed. I imagine it's very painful.
