    Default Odd, but hopefully not that odd question?

    So I've just been away with my boy for the weekend visiting, we just got home from the car trip today. Went to give him a belly scratch as usual, but I noticed something odd. He usually gets a bit excited when given attention, but I noticed this time the tip of his penis seems to be quite swollen. Not just excited swollen, but almost like some sort of fluid buildup?? He doesn't seem all that bothered by it, and it's not sticking out like it can't retract, but I've never seen that before, and I'm a bit worried about what it could be, and how it could appear so quickly? I did a bit of googling and apparently it can be caused by drying out, preventing it from properly retracting an causing blood buildup, so I put a small bit of vaseline on it (oh the things you have to do!! ) ..

    I'll keep an eye on him and see how it goes by the morning and head to the vet if it doesn't seem to have improved .. but has anyone had this before or know what it could be? Like I said, he doesn't seem at all bothered by it, but it's bothering me knowing it's there!

    There's a reason I prefer girl dogs, and this would be yet another one of them.

    I've got no idea specifically.

    One of my friends who is more willing than me will routinely "take care of" any boy problems her horses, dogs or bfs have. So vaseline, warm soapy water, antibiotic cream from vet, what ever the willy bit needs - she will do it.

    Personally - I'd be looking for instructions from the vet... so many ways for that bit to go wrong and it's such a precious bit (judging by the amount of licking it gets from your average boy dog).

    He seems to be fine this morning .. no idea what caused it - but I'm glad it's gone Just worries me seeing things like that as I have no idea what caused it - as gross as it is. No doubt I would have been off to the vet this morning if it was still there, but I thought I'd ask first in case it was a common thing people with male dogs deal with.

    bfs - short for "boy friends"...

    she'd be a good vet/doctor. No problems handling all the bits...

    As far as taking care of it goes - you do need to pay attention to every bit of a dog... ticks can lodge there too... and grass seeds and etc. And normally the dog would take care of these but not always...

    Lipstick is how I've heard it referred. He's got his lipstick out.

    Which makes it hard to actually apply lipstick that particular colour... or look at the conventional stuff... But I don't bother with makeup any more. Nobody has complained.

    Has to be done, like picking up the doggy burgers in the back yard before mowing - difficult keeping the last meal down! Sooner you can get over the "Ewww" stage the better

    Thank dog its gone. Poor boy. Maybe it is true ...like they say ...if you play with it to much it'll fall off. Maybe he left it alone just in the nick of time.

    Is that why reyzor hasn't been around much lately?

    I use the poop bag I plan to pick the poop up with to clear the dags or dangly bits...

    Sometimes get some funny comments from other people for doing a "tail check".

    Anal sac clearing is something I hope I never have to do... bleaaahh

    I've never had to do that Hyacinth, though some people seem to make out it's almost part of every grooming session .. not sure why.
