Is this her vent?

She needs a vet. She could have a prolapse. That is a serious injury.


Get her into a tub of lukewarm water and clean that off really well. Spray with Vetericyn or saline solution, keep her in, away from flies.

You say it's her belly but there shouldn't be any type of opening on her belly. Also if it's her vent then it's not on her belly and also shouldn't look like that.

What other symptoms does she have? What was she doing prior?

She was being her normal self. I just happened to see a little spot of blood and checked it out. She's walking eating and drinking.

I had a similar problem and though it would never heal.. I used purple spray and wound powder twice a day.. it heeled up nicely in the end.

Good luck

The only ver we would find in the area said he couldn't do anything to the wound it self. But gave usome pain and antibiotics because the skin is infected. Any other helpful tips to aid in healing fast.
