Possible prolapse??

Postby Beardiealice » Sun Jul 07, 2019 12:10 pm


Every time that Alice has pooped lately, her vent looks inflamed. It started out to be just barely red, but now it almost looked like she was prolapsing? It was very red and puffy and I think I even saw the purple ness of a vein. I didn’t get a picture because I was too busy worrying, but it has gone back in. Should I be concerned about this? She’s up running between the living room and kitchen, so she doesn’t seem to be in pain. However, she got 2 tsp of cc with 2 tsp of water about 4 days ago, and she hasn’t passed very much of it.

Viv setup:
65 gallon with basking spot at 98-100 degrees Fahrenheit and cool side around 72-75 degrees
Reptisun t5 10.0 UVB that was replaced 4ish months ago
She’s on Critical because of MBD, low weight, and she refuses to eat anything

I hope it isn't a prolapse! Has she ever tried to lay any eggs before? Did she appear to be
straining when this happened, or not?
Can you review your tank setup with us, such as the type/brand of UVB light, the supplementation
used & frequency in which it is given, temperatures & foods fed just so we can get a better idea
what could be going on.
Perhaps she is a little dehydrated & was straining a little bit, I'm not sure. Have her urates been
soft or hard?

Let us know how she is doing.
