To treat preputial blockage your veterinarian will need to sedate the prairie dog, manually remove the debris under the foreskin, and thoroughly clean the affected area. If present, bacterial infections are treated with antibiotics.
For a quick and complete recovery, it is important you place the prairie dog in a clean living environment, away from other animals and distractions, and that you follow all recommendations given by your veterinarian.
If you do intend to mate your prairie dog, the best way to prevent preputial blockage is to have it castrated. Otherwise, take your pet for regular health checkups to identify issues with preputial blockage early.
