Female mouse genital protrusion

Post by christianchmiel on Sat Sep 10, 2016 11:52 pm

I have three does, one of which we have noticed recently has a slender pink/red protrusion coming from her genitals. She is acting completely normal, very active, eating well, etc. If I am able to post pics, I have some. Does anyone have a clue what this could be? She doesn't seem to be in pain but it's obviously not normal. Best way I can describe it; sort of looks like intestine (like a casing) much like a pink hot dog (she is a female!). Earlier we did notice she looked swollen there. Any help would be appreciated.

How old is she? Has she ever given birth? Is she able to poop/pee? Does she have any abdominal tenderness that you can tell?

Just based on the limited information your provided, it sounds like it could be a vaginal prolapse. Sometimes it can involve the bladder, bowel or uterus. i'm not sure what the treatment would be, if any, in a mouse.

Sorry to hear about your mouse Sad It does sound like either a prolapse or perhaps some kind of growth/tumour. Does she squeak or react to it being touched? Feel free to attach a picture, but either way, she will need to see a vet.

Mice are extremely good at hiding pain—in the wild, it protects them from predators—so you can't always accept the fact that since she's acting normal, she's fine. This sounds like a super painful thing for her... I'd get her to the vet ASAP.

Sounds like a prolapse. Get her to a vet.
