    Default Extremely Enlarged Penis

    Our little paraplegic squirrel Victor has a VERY enlarged penis tonight, all red - it's like a huge bubble, as if the foreskin did not get back to cover the shaft. I find that the tip is rather dark and that worries me immensely. He seemed normal yesterday. I saw that tonite when I picked him up to go give him his bath.

    When I gave him his bath I saw him urinate - apprently normally - and he poos normally. However his groin and belly seem all sticky and wet, constantly; even after I had dried him off well after his bath I found him all wet again a few minutes later. I didn't have any KY so I used some Polysporin to prevent it from drying. Now I find that the tip seems dark and I'm very worried.


    My poor little guy needs help. Should I give him some Metacam? Antibiotics? Anything else I should do?

    EDIT: I'd forgotten to mention that his testes are also huge. That too seems like a new development from today

    Oh that poor little guy! Definitely metacam and I would start an antibiotic as well. What do you have for ABs?

    The Peace of Wild Things
    BY WENDELL BERRY
    When despair for the world grows in me
    and I wake in the night at the least sound
    in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
    I go and lie down where the wood drake
    rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
    I come into the peace of wild things
    who do not tax their lives with forethought
    of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
    And I feel above me the day-blind stars
    waiting with their light. For a time
    I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

    Good thinking with the Prep H! The Metacam addresses the internal swelling so it is very important and the AB will help if it is a UTI situation.

    I have Clavamox, Clyndamycin, Amoxycillin for antiobiotics. Wen spreading some of the Poly some of the skin came off the tip - necrotized I presume but there is no bleeding. This is not looking good at all. Maybe it had started already yesterday and I just had not seen it.

    I also have some Bactrim.

    I think that I would start with Clavamox. Bactrim might help, but it is slow acting. Do you have the dosing?

    OK Clavamox it shall be. Yes, I have the dosing, thanks.

    How often do I give the Metacam?

    I know that Clavamox is twice a day.

    Get your strongest glasses or a magnifying glass and check his penis very carefully to make sure something like a hair or fiber hasn't wrapped around it causing this.

    A good, totally safe method to pull the swelling out is to dampen it with water and completely coat it in regular table sugar. You are kind of trying to make a solid "cast" from the sugar so use plenty. If he licks it - no problem.

    I know that Clavamox is twice a day.
    The metacam is usually ONCE a day.
    The first dose will be the loading dose.
    The following days, cut that amount in half and
    dose that, once.

    Tnx Nancy, C M I will tell Iwonka about the sugar thing. I brought him there since hubby and I are running around like crazy this week (just bought another property).

    I took our sweetie to the vet today and she (the vet) said it's the sheath itself that is all swollen. His penis itself seems OK and he urinates without a problem. Victor might have injured himself somehow, on something and I'm trying to check everythingin his cage. Vet said to continue the antibiotics (Clavamox) and Metacam and keep the injury lubrified at all times. Has to be cleaned 3 times a day and we have to keep a watch to make sure the swellilng doesn't get worse.

    The sugar helps to bring down the swelling. Wet the penis and then take simple granulated sugar onto the penis. I am not sure why, but it helps to relieve the swelling. They even use this on men who have this issue.

    Not much change as of today but some of the swelling has gone down. Vet recommended that we give the AABs a chance to start acting and make sure he stays lubricated.

    Iwonka's following those instructions and making sure he stays clean and can pee well and sleep well.

    Thank you for the update!
    I forgot to ask, where is the property you're buying?
    Are you building a home on it?
    I only ask because your home and yard are SO gorgeous,
    I would hate to move.

    We're not moving Just bought a duplex to help supplement old age pension income and, mostly, to ensure my oldest son will always have a roof over his head (he lives with Asperger's syndrome) while being able to live independantly. It's sort of an insurance policy for us. That property is not too far from where we live - some 15 minutes away.

    EDIT: We don't want to move either. Long as I can still afford to live here I will.

    15 minutes is perfect!
    Glad you aren't moving, your place is spectacular!
