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!
