    Prolapse?

    Ok...I got BP from another store today. I always take the smallest ones to help them thrive. She is sweet and docile however every time I hold her she pees. What is concerning to me is she seems to prolapse every time she is stressed. Then I see on her chart from the other store,is to keep an eye on possible prolapse. Is this normal? I'm thinking not since my snakes don't do this, other snakes for three years haven't done this. I'm confused and need to help this little girl. Once she calms down she looks normal.

    Help!

    Re: Prolapse?

    Iíve had snakes in the past that would gape the vent, most likely in preparation for musking, but nothing that actually prolapsed. That seems very unusual.

    Yes, like Dianne said...that's unusual, poor snake. I wonder if she has an injury/pain or infection from someone's poor job of sexing? Is there an actual prolapse
    of tissue or just opening the vent? I think I read somewhere that (rarely) a snake can be born with the tendency to prolapse, not sure if they can grow out of it
    & be normal though? Sounds like she might be a candidate for placement rather than sale, if this continues?

    She looks fine once she is calm. No prolapse at all. Normal vent. When I hold her she pees and it looks pink and puffy. I'll see if I can get a picture of it today. I soaked her yesterday since she has a stuck shed and she peed her urates in the water with some yellow stringy stuff too. I need to soak her again today since her she'd is so dang stuck I barely got any off her. I'm concerned with parasites too with the stringy stuff.

    I was just thinking that she might have something going on with her GI tract that makes her feel the need to go when handled...I'd get that checked for sure.
    Sounds like when you have "the runs" & even after you're pretty empty, the urge still comes on. Poor baby. Colonoscopy prep comes to mind... If that's
    the case, be sure she doesn't get dehydrated.

    Sounds like something a specialiced (for snakes) vet will be better at identifying

    Here are the pics. When she is relaxed she looks totally normal without prolapse.

    Have you fed her? Does that happen when she squeezes prey?
