Prolapse?

Postby Kip2000 » Mon Jun 17, 2019 2:01 pm

Hi everyone,

My female beardie had been fine all day. When I checked on her tonight she has what looks like a trail of poop attached to her, some of it is kinda red and I’m worried it may be a prolapse. It’s massive and came on so quickly. She doesn’t seem bothered by it though. She’s still eating and running around. She did look a little dehydrated so I’ve made sure she’s had some water and gave her a little bath hoping this helps.

Thanks in advance

Hi Kip, this might be very serious. Post a pic of it ASAP. They can act normally when it first happens. Here's how to post pics :

It’s massive and came on so quickly. She doesn’t seem bothered by it though. She’s still eating and running around. She did look a little dehydrated, her pads and eyes look sunken, so I’ve made sure she’s had some water and gave her a little bath hoping this helps.

Yeah sorry, didn’t realise I posted twice. This is her. I’m very worried, nothing like this has ever happened before, she’s always been very healthy.

I've never seen anything like it. Can you lift her tail + get another pic ? I don't see any red, just looks like a massive poo. Looks like you might want to soak it in warm water + see it it works itself off. Might be some tissue but can't tell. If it's stuck poo it might be connected with a human hair or something.

Hello,

Ouch, that probably doesn't feel real good. Have you tried bathing her to see if anything
works loose? It is a prolapse but feces is stuck & dried also. The prolapse is somewhat
big but definitely concerning.
Did she strain when going to the bathroom?

Yeah, you would’ve thought she’d be a little more uncomfortable than she is.
I have given her a little bath as she really isn’t keen on them :( I’ll try and give her another one, she’s fine as long as they’re only short ones, and see if I can get any of that poo off.
As mentioned she did seem a bit dehydrated, which is unlike her but I’ve made sure I’ve watched her drink and the bath should help more with that. So she could have possibly been straining because she hadn’t drank enough?

There’s no vets in my area open right now so I can’t call anyone until tomorrow. I’m in the UK so is midnight right now. Do you think she’ll be okay until tomorrow?

As well as soaking in concentrated sugar solution in the hope it retracts of it's own accord , this is a genuine vet emergency , I STRONGLY ADVISE getting her the nearest REPTILE VET , today .

I'd call ahead and tell them you are on the way and don't let them fog you off into making an appointment for another day.

I think since the prolapse has been in contact with raw feces you girl is going to need antibiotics to try to stop the affected tissues from becoming infected. If they do it's VERY BAD.

There will be a vet ER that handles after hours emergencies like this.

She might be OK til tomorrow. Sooner she's attended to by a vet the better her prognosis .

Poor girl, that happened as she was passing the fecal matter. Def. soak her to try to loosen the poo from the rectum as much as you can. Best wishes for a good outcome. !
