Ive got a 8week old female, who is eating well,seems very healthy but i noticed that around her vagina is very red, the actual bit you check for sexing is a normal pink colour but abit further back looks like it has split, is this normal for her age or is something wrong? im very worried but dont want to make an appointment with the vet if it is normal for her age.Ive been checking her since ive had her at 6 weeks and there has been no redness whats so ever until last night.She is clean ive checked for hay/shavings but nothing, What do i do? Help please!!:(

Without actually being able to see it its impossible to say.

Is the anus swollen ?

Is she passing normal faeces and eating/drinking OK ?

Posting a picture would be helpful.

The pic is a bit blurry but to me it looks like there is a small cut/sore :?

Treponematosis (Syphillis) is a possibility. Does she have any sore looking marks around her nostrils or mouth ?

Also, I am not sure that she is a 'she'....... :?

Did she come from a Breeder or a Petshop?
