    I have a Horsfield tortoise (I was told they were around 2 years old) that looked as though he was doing a poo earlier but instead this red sack like thing was stuck by his tail. I soaked him in some warm water and it seemed to go back inside, but now it's out again. I looked online and someone...

    Morphine! :2thumb: Had to take Rhaegar to the vets to have a prolapse popped back in and the vet gave him/her (having now taken a look I'm not so convinced of it being 'him' although it was all a bit swollen to be sure) a morphine injection for the pain, sure calmed down quick after that! Now...

    Hi, I recently bought a snake 3-4 weeks ago. He's a young male leucistic texas rat snake. He's eating well and has had three feeds, the most recent being yesterday, and seems very well settled. However, I'm noticing he's sometimes opening his vent with pink matter which looks like a slight...

    Hi, I've been having a lot of problems with my baby amazon tree boa that I bought in February, including a prolapse that has a tendency to pop in and out and also trouble shedding. The vet says stress is making it worse and I'm due to move down to Devon soon. I originally got him from Cornwall...

    Hi, my poor little Crestie has prolapsed, only one of his hemipenes, I have separated him and put him in a sugarbath, but how long do I leave him in there? And how long should I leave it until I should take him to the vets? Also, if anyone has any other tips, it would be much appreciated Thank you!

    Hello all, I have an 18-month-old horsfield tortoise who I think is female. She came out of hibernation a couple of weeks ago for the first time and is eating normally after a few days of coming round. I have just been bathing her and noticed a blob of brown coming out of her which I presumed to...

    Hello everyone, Can anyone help me what happened with my poor tortoise? Is this penile prolapse or intestinal prolapse? What should I do? He is now in the water with glucose and Claforan. Thanks again!

    Hi, I've just walked passed our enclosure and noticed my tort was stood still and "sat" on something that looked like it was connected via the tail. I gently lifted her to see it was fleshy, purple in clolour and approx 2/3 inches long, and coming out of her tail. I tried to put her down so...

    As title really.... one of my little treefrogs has had an anal prolapse on and off since I got him. I've managed to get it back in once, and the rest of the time he's managed it himself, sometimes I give a coat of vaseline to stop it drying out, and usually the morning or afternoon after, its...

    Well you gotta experience to learn, right? Here's me with a young Royal anticipating that my first 'real' issue was likely going to be feeding related. After all, it seems like if you're going to have an issue with a Royal, it's going to be along the lines of 'zomg it's not eating!!'. But that...

    I thought I'd post this just as I was curious I guess.. After all the problems our chameleon Stryder has had with his eye's and his bones, yesterday he had a prolapse after passing something very large, that was probably the cause of his prolapse. It was about 11:30am when he first passed a...

    I think my young B&W Tegu has had a prolapse. If it has it is a very small one as it only comes out a tiny bit.. it is about a foot long and around 50 grams. I have put him in a sugar solution and removed substrate from the viv. It doesnt seem to be bothering him at all and when he walks it is...
