I apologize for the gross content of this post, but I was wondering if anyone could help us. My 9 month old male rat has been bleeding on and off for the last 10 days or so from his penis, bright red blood, and it sometimes stains his bedding. He went to the emergency vet 10 days ago and they took an X-ray to look for stones but couldn’t see any. They gave him two UTI medicines (Sulfamethoxa/Trimethoprim and Meloxicam) for the week, but it doesn’t seem like it made a difference at all. Because on Friday he had a penis plug with blood on it. And today, the same thing happened. This bloody plugs came from the side of his penis, like they were stuck in the skin folds or something. Again, sorry for the graphic details. I hope the vet can figure out what’s wrong but I wanted to see if the rat community might be familiar with this occurrence. Thank you so much in advance.
