my dear little man has been battling penile prolapse. it has been put back in place, and came back out hours later. there seems to be no reason for this, so i’m starting to suspect a defect, which wouldn’t be good news…so wish him luck and send him love, please. i love this little mouse so much. he’s so special to me.

Poor little Mr. Bald.  Of course I already love everybody's mousies   Jump Hearts , so I'll try to send some help too.

Is he in a hospital tank so you can better watch for evidence that he is able to urinate?  Is he under veterinary care or home care?

If you didn't run across it already in a search for help, here's a link for rats in Mr. Bald's situation, from which you can click to a case history:
https://ratguide.com/health/reproductive/paraphimosis.php

I have heard of hemorrhoid cream being used for certain animals to shrink the troubled anatomy, but I do not know if it is safe on mice.

I hope you can get your little friend fixed up. Keep us updated.

thank you so much. <3

he is (very grumpily) in a hospital tank, currently very stinky with urine…and had his penis put back in today so he’s just a bit swollen and angry. he is under veterinary care, as try as I might i just couldn’t get his willy back in. he’s just too tiny! it happened twice and the vet says if it happens again we’ll be referred to another vet where surgery can be done to place a suture, holding it in place. i am so grateful. it’s a risky procedure i’m sure, but if it keeps happening then quality of life becomes a concern…and then you have to think about things i’d rather not think about yet. i love him!

i will certainly look into the cream, because the weekend is coming up and my beloved vet is closed so i’m a little worried lol.

Knock on wood, it’s still in! 24 hours good so far! We decided to confine him to a hospital tank this time, so he won’t over exert himself. Still don’t know what caused it exactly but fingers crossed it won’t be an issue anytime soon.

Oh @River I hope Mr Bald is still OK. I've not been on much so missed this. Any updates?

River: I got you a kind of sideways second medical opinion this morning.

While I was eating dollar store honey nut cereal rings for breakfast and reading from my book stack, I had "The Incredible Dr. Pol" on the telly (WHOOOooo! Triple tasking!), and the doctor took a phone call from somebody who had a duck with Mr. Bald's (now cured, we hope) prolapsified condition. Dr. Pol prescribed using hemorrhoid cream on the duck.

I appreciate both of you so much! Thankfully he’s still all good, and still grumpily confined to his hospital tank.

He has mites on top of this (not sure how related those can possibly be), and the vet said the fact that he was already on antibiotics to help the wounds from his scratching heal is what kept his weiner healthy during its…adventure. no infections or necrosis and his swelling is all but gone, so yay for that!

his follow up is wednesday, both to check up on those mites of his and to make sure he’s healing well from that prolapse. his skin is still weird to me ( his skin is very thick, but maybe he just scars bad) but everything else looks good!

So...happened again. At this point it feels like routine lol. We’re managing it with hemorrhoid cream and antibiotic ointment for now but on Wednesday he has an appointment to have it replaced and we’ll schedule his surgery. He’ll be altered while he’s under, even though he does fine with his neutered boyfriend I figure it’ll be nice to have females in the colony later so…if i have to risk it i might as well.
