Default Hernia bulging through penis? Lethargic

My little boy hedgehog has been acting strange and arching his back and straining. I noticed a bulge today by his penis anus area and then he strained hard and organ was poking through his penis. I can't get him to a vet until tomorrow. Has anyone experienced this??

Arching his back and straining sounds normal and is what they do when they get an erection and start mastubating. I'm not sure if you've seen it before but when they get an erection, the penis is quite large that comes out of the sheath (I was pretty shocked myself!). Are you sure you're not just mistaken it as a hernia? Is the hernia there when he is acting normal and his sheath is normal?

Could that be what it is!? Lol he seems to have a lot of bulging down by his anus. Maybe he's fine. But he has been really lethargic and lying on us.... on his belly. Maybe he's just hot. And horny! Hahaha. Oh man. I hope so!!

Lol don't worry, it's always best to check and be safe. I was very puzzled when I first got my boy and he kept doing the arching and straining, I thought he was having seizures as he would fall over after >< nope I just have a very active little boy, he's not shy about it either!

Bulging by his anus, if it's his underside it will be his testicles. But if anything is coming out of his anus then that is not normal and would need to be checked out (they can prolapse). If he's straining when he is doing a poop then he might be a bit constipated. You can offer remedies to help with that but sounds like it's his testicles you can see, again they're quite large for such a small little creature! ^.^
