I’ve got a Nigerian dwarf girl whose bottom always seems swollen. I looked closely at it yeasterday and it looks like it may be infected. There is what looks like a mucous substance and the area around her anus is swollen. Any ideas?

Oh, poor baby. I have had a similar problem with my does, but I don’t know what causes it. Is she pregnant? Are you deworming her regularly?
It could be a yeast infection, but I don’t know. Is the area in which she stays in musty?
I would have a vet take a look. That looks super painful, and if it has been happening for some time, then it is probably something that should be checked.

How old is she? I would very gently clean her up with warm water and gentle soap..get a better look. It's hard to see what exactly is going on. It maybe staph infection...please repost a pic for us after you wash her. She may not like it much. But you need to see what's going on

Not pregnant. It has been a while I have dewormed her. I’ll give that a shot.

She is about six years old. Never pregnant. She has often looked a little swollen in that area, but never this swollen. I will clean her up and see how it looks after.
