Sorry if this is a silly question!

So quite often when I pick Iggy up he leaks a drop of white liquid or from his willy. Especially when being examined. With his many problems I just figured it was due to swelling or something initially.

Is it a boy thing? I'm quite new to boy bits so I'm unsure whether this is normal or not?

@Cavy Kung-Fu It probably is caused by his neuter but if he's not dripping alot, or is wetting himself then I wouldn't worry too much.

Even when they do have peeing issues it can be controlled by keeping the cage extra clean.

I really wouldn't worry at this moment in time. Just keep an eye on his underneath to make he's not wetting on himself.

It sounds more like a drop or two is getting caught and then the motion of picking him up is dislodging it.

Quite a few of my pigs have a poop fall out when i pick them up. I think it's the pressure and motion that does it

Okay thank you for putting my mind at ease. He never has urine scalds or anything like that but I'll always keep an eye on it.

Is it damaged muscles or something do you reckon? I've wondered for a while as his bottom has looked a bit puckered ever since his op, but as far as I can tell he's fine otherwise. I don't know if it's a boy thing or not, too used to girls!
