And it has been since last night. Should I take him into the vets? If so, does anyone have phone numbers for consulting vets who know about this stuff?

I asked about this elsewhere last night, and was told he was just being a dude, and not to mess with it. I know it is normal for it to be out sometimes... but I doubt being out for a span of hours is normal.

I would definately take him to the vet. I wouldn't risk permanent damage by his penis being out for too long. It could dry out and/or he might start SMing it.

You might try making sure it stays lubed with some KY until you can get him into the vets office.

Try using KY jelly on it, and see if he'll put it back in. It shouldn't be out all the time, it is bad if it gets dried out, then he won't be able to retract it. If he can't get it back in, take him to the vet.

Does it need to be KY, or will any brand do?

It can be generic brand as long as its water based with no additives. (No "warming", fragrance, etc)

I gave him a pine nut and let let me apply it just fine.

At least it doesn't seem like it is bothering him, and doesn't look like he has been messing with it.

How old is this little fella? Sometimes when they are hitting puberty, they do it just because they can dunno I would still keep a close eye on him.

I'm going to to ahead and move this to Health & Hygiene for you.

He is somewhere between 4-5. I have a vet appointment at noon to take him in to the nearest vet. The one we usually go to for our critters didn't have their exotic vet in today.

They have to amputate the tips of his penis. I'll get a call after he wakes up from surgery.

Why did they decide they needed to amputate? Was the tissue necrotic?

Yep, on both tips. frown

So they're going to do that, put it back inside, and put a stitch to hold it (I talked to the vet about this preventing him from using the bathroom, and he said it wouldn't).

I was told if I don't hear by 2pm, to call and see what is going on. There was another surgery first.

The desk girl told me that this vet sees a lot of gliders, and he sounds like he knew what he was doing, so...

I've read about Simba, which is why I brought up my concerns in the first place. They aren't going to stitch him shut from what I was told, just put a small one to help it stay in.

That's what they did with Simba! The stitch can damage the frenulum inside!

Surgery is already done, and the vet is in doing another surgery. I was told he would talk to me when I go in to pick up Samson, which they said to do about 3 (It's after 1 here now), so he can wake up from the anesthesia.

She said that they had to put the stitch in because everything was so swollen it just kept popping right back out.

Jen...I know what they're telling you and it's exactly what was done to Simba and can cause serious damage! They have GOT to get the swelling down and putting it back inside when it's swollen can cause it to tear around the stitch, causing even greater damage. *sigh* Please contact Bourbon and if you don't get her, then call Mary H. I'm going to PM you her number since it's not listed in her profile.

I have a phone number for Dr. Pat now, and she said to have my vet call and consult with him or Dr. Fronefield when I go in to pick up Samson.
