Hi All

Whiskey is a 21month old female rat. Back in early June she had the attached picture. I got her to the vets and she had surgery for a Vaginal Polyp and at the same time she got spade. Am now 7 weeks on and noticed today that she has the same again......not quite as large.

Is this something that can keep happening now?
Should the vet have fixed first time or is this something that cannot be fixed?

Appreciate any advice.

Thanks

Aww poor lass. This polyp is developing just inside her vagina. I had something similar happen with an old rescue gal. My vet tied a suture around it (to prevent bleeding) and snicked it off.

Thanks. Behind the polyp was cancer. The bladder etc. was encased by the cancer and vet said it would have been very difficult to operate on, would cause Whiskey a lot of discomfort and he does not believe it would have worked. His advice was to put her to sleep.
I was not expecting that as thought it was just another operation to remove the polyp. Very sad :(
