Hi,
we banded our three Nigerians about a month ago. All three have had their sacks shrivel up to nothing, and seem to be doing very well. How long till the sacks fall off?

We have one that has torn a little bit between the band and the belly. We noticed it last night, as he was in a little pain (still eating and jumping around through). Is this how they fall off? Should I just blu-kote it and wait?

want to make sure we're not missing something.

Thanks

If it's just a little place with not a lot of blood I'd Blue Kote it and keep an eye on it.

If it's a big tear you may need to take him to the vet if it's bleeding a lot.

He may need an antibiotic shot too.

Don't need an infection in the testes, that's for sure.

By the way, when it does fall off, if you find it keep it for good luck,.much better than a rabbit's foot.

it was between a 1/4 and 1/2 inch around the base of the -former- sack. there was some redness, and a pin-drop worth of blood, but not gushing or anything.

You haven't heard of a rabbit foot being lucky??? :gasp: Whenever I got rabbits by surprise, my friend who already thought we were insane with the conglomeration of animals we have found out by me telling her, "Okay, their feet are considered lucky, they are cute, and they are about the size of a loaf of bread".

When you find them you can sew a zipper on them and have a change purse.
So I'm guessing you have quite the collection then!! Lol!

I couldn't carry my wethers' boy bits around ... it would feel like betrayal. If they can't wear them, neither shall I. ;)
