------------------------------------------------------------------------------------














Unusual case of rectal prolapse. The hamster is still active and eating and pooping via the prolapsed rectum (evidence - see below). The prolapse was double the size of usual rectal prolapse. I ward him for 2 days and gave antibiotics.

On Day 2, lots of yellowish pus spilled out from the prolapsed rectum. The rectum itself had a large abscess. You can see the scab closing the wound of the abscessed area.

On Day 3, the hamster went home. He bit off the stitches, but no prolapse.  Around 4 days later in Nov 15, 2017, I phoned the owner. There was no rectal prolapse at all. The outcome was excellent.
