Is This a Sperm Plug?

Postby DeweysMom » Sat Oct 16, 2010 11:55 am

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Dewey has this weird looking thing hanging out of his vent. He's had it for a couple of days now, but it just won't come out. He's had a bowel movement since I first noticed it, but it's still there. Initially I thought it was poop, but after doing some searching I feel it may be a sperm plug. He's about a year give or take a couple of weeks if that matters.

If it is a sperm plug what should I do? Just leave it and let him pass it? Should I give him something to help? It doesn't seem to be bothering him, but it's freaking me out!

Yeah, it looks like a seminal plug to me. You can try GENTLY pulling on it. If it is a seminal plug, it should come right out. If it doesn't come out immediately, then stop pulling! :D

Thanks for the advice. I tried pulling it out gently and it basically fell apart. I got a piece of it, but there's still some stuck inside. I'm obviously not going to probe around inside to try to dig it out. Will bathing him be enough to help or should I give him something to try to pass it along?

The rest should come out the next time he poops. Bathing him should help to soften it up. :D
