General information on Paraphimosis

Paraphimosis is a condition in which, once the penis extends, it is unable to retract. The main cause of paraphimosis is entangled hair preventing the penis from retracting. Hair can become entangled by the cat mating or long hair can roll under. Other causes of paraphimosis include a narrow opening, cancer, inflammation, injuries, or foreign bodies. Paraphimosis can be prevented by trimming the hair around the penis and examining and removing excess loose hair, especially after the cat mates.

Symptoms of Paraphimosis

The symptoms of paraphimosis may be: the penis does not retract, inability to urinate, liking around the penis area, excessive hair around the penis, and trauma to the penis.

Treatments for Paraphimosis

The treatment for paraphimosis is to first remove the excess hair around the penis, push the affected catís penis back into the prepuce, and rub mineral oil onto the surface of the penis to prevent further damage. Inflammation is reduced and a veterinarian will most likely prescribe medication that is to be applied to the shaft twice per day. In severe cases, amputation of may be required. While treating the affected cat, it is not uncommon for the cat to need to be sedated prior to be treated.
