The whole thing is Miss Jen he does not need a stitch. I dont understand what the vet hopes to accomplish by that, would you ask him the purpose, maybe I am missing something. But I would think the less invasive the better and the mutilation /penis prolapse experts have alternative methods, Prep h, and triple antibiotic plus pain, oragel/benzodent(make a paste, numbs area for hours), there are topical prescription antiinflammatory agents. If the TAO plus pain is applied often and collar/jacket stays on the penis will not dry out! With the stitches so many complications can occur. ((((HUGS))) hon

Samson is still doing okay. Didn't eat as much last night as he did the night before, but I don't think he likes his fruits/veggies pureed together. He did eat some of it, though, and ate all of his complete. There are also plenty of poos in the bottom of the cage.

He is gunky again, though. Anyone have any tips for cleaning him up? I wiped him off yesterday with a wash cloth with warm water, but I don't feel like it did a good job. I have baby wipes, nature's miracle wipes, liquid soap, bar soap, etc. I'm just not sure what is okay to use on him.

wipes tend to leave em greasy looking. shampoos dry out the skin. I get nolvasan from my vet (its a blue colored wound cleaning solution)and water it down to light blue, wet a washcloth with warm water, i pour some on one end of the wascloth and wipe down his soiled spots, then i use the other end of the cloth to rinse him(Spencer), i then dry him with a towel and plop him in my bra until hes dry.

Nolvasan. I'll remember to ask for some. Should I just stick with trying to use water until then?

Seeing as the use "regular" Dawn dish soap to clean oil off of wild life I would think that a very dilute solution of plain Dawn (no bleach or other additives) would work to clean him up until you can get the Nolvasan.

With either solution make sure you get as much as possible out of his fur, ringing out a washcloth several times.

Good Luck

Maybe baby shampoo? It isn't supposed to dry out skin.

I do have baby shampoo.. and some Dawn. I think I'll dilute the baby shampoo and give that a go and see how it works.

I got ejackets! Yay! Is there some magic trick to getting them on, and them staying on? I've tried a couple times now and he keeps slipping out of it. frown

Well, she got the e-jacket to stay on clap and Samson has learned how much NICER it is than an e-collar (giving him a test treat.... roflmao )

I told her about this video I made yesterday....it's a little amusing and VERY comforting to see me having to try at least twice to get it to stay on this little wisp of a girl named Savaan, she nailed me HARD at least 3 times before I got it to stay. She was NOT happy to be my model....I told her she was going to be a star, she didn't care! shakehead
