In Reply to: Bleeding Cloaca!?? posted by Matthew W. on March 13, 2003 at 10:19:12:
:For the last week, Petros has been leaving a small amount of blood behind when he wipes his cloaca after pooping. Petros has been eating well and pooping every day (his poops are very firm and consistent). The blood is not in the feces but left when he drags his bottom. I'm afraid that maybe one of his blood vessels was ruptured when he was sexed by Blair or he hurt it some other way since then. Now I will certainly take a fecal into the vet to make sure it's not intestinal but I'm hesitant to take Petros in since he's so small and appears completely fine otherwise. He's not bleeding from his cloaca when closed, only leaving a little behind when he inverts it to wipe after pooping. Has anyone else experienced this? Should I try to bring him into the vet? I just don't know what they can do for him except traumatize him by trying to open up his cloaca. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
it's a tough call i've never had it with any of my animals i don't think?myself i would wait on the vet.if not already on paper i would put on paper maybe a warm bath and neosporin"if safe"once a day take sharp objects out keep paper clean.i wish i had more for you.i do think he must have caught him self on something and he'll be o.k.i'm sure you'll get alot of good feed back from the others good luck and best wishes in what you do. chris
