My male hairless rat has just passed a small white discharge or mucus bowel movement. I've had a quick look on the site and have seen a bit of info about megacolon
he has never passed stool
like this before as far as i am aware, he is 9/10 months old now and i thought that megacolon would develop from a young age.
he has had diarrhea before but i assumed it was because of me giving him treats in too high a quantity such as peas or yoghurt. i have since reduced the amount of food he gets and have not experienced any diarrhea recently.
is this white mucus/discharge a definite sign of megacolon, what other causes could there be. should i be worried and rushing to the vet?
thank you guys
