    Well, we went to the vet yesterday...Bodie hasn't bled since the two times on Saturday, I wanted to push it out and look at it on Sunday, but then again I didn't want to! I really wanted to see what it looked like, but I didn't want to disturb it or have it start to bleed again. So yesterday the vet pushed it out and it doesn't look good. However, it doesn't look the same as it did on the last 2 prolapses.? The first two times this happened, it looked like a purple mushroom had formed on the tip of his penis, to be more visual, his penis went from smooth to a large swollen purple mushroom somewhat hanging off the end. After his second surgery, because the entire prolapse had to be cut off, his "normal" tip looked kinda gross, mangled, and lumpy all over. The vet told us that is the way it would look from then on. Well, this time, the tip looks exactly like his "normal" lumpy tip, but then it goes to swollen and red and larger in circumference than the tip. It's very confusing to me! It just doesn't look like the prolapses from the past. Idk if its because after his second surgery, w/the mangled look, that's how a prolapse would look now or what?
    However, my local vet, the one we visited yesterday, has never actually seen a prolapsed urethra before and isn't familiar w/ the surgery or any protocol for this. So we'll be going back to Wilmington, 2 1/2-3 hour drive, to the animal hospital where Bodie had his first 2 surgeries done. We go there next Tuesday. Then I guess we'll find out if it has actually prolapsed or if, maybe, this is just an episode that may happen every now and then and doesn't require any kind of surgery. Obviously we're hoping for no surgery! Our local vet and hospital in Wilmington don't seem to be overly concerned since he's no longer bleeding and he's not having any issues with urinating. He doesn't seem to be in any pain either. Vet did give us some Valium to keep him comfortable and "laid back" if needed.
    Ill continue to keep y'all updated on any new news if any and then on what happens at next weeks appt.
    thanks for all the prayers and support and keep them coming!!!

But if you have a surgeon that is experienced in it, then hopefully the chances are much better that it won't prolapse again. Finn has had 2 episodes of this in the past and I worry about him too. Hugs to u and Bodie !
    We do have a wonderful vet surgeon that did Bodies first two episodes, he also told us that even after the second surgery, where the prolapse had to be cut off, that there was no guarantee that it wouldn't happen again because there's still more lining of the penis. This is why we've always tried to stay on top of his "air humping" antics!! We always tell him to quit doing that before he breaks his GG again!! It would be very helpful if they could find the reason for why this happens though!! Vets have told me that obviously they don't know why or what causes it but there are many different theories as to why: UTI's, genetics, hormones, "sexually" related issues. But because Bodie was only 3 months old when he prolapsed the 1st time, our local vet was baffled! She said that it wasn't from being "sexual", he wasn't even producing sperm at that age nor did he hump either. I actually think the 1st time, that he had an UTI, bladder infection! And he actually did have an urinary tract infection!
    The 2nd time he prolapsed he was 7 months old. 2 days prior he "came into his manhood", so to say! He had went out to pee, came in and I went to clean him off and he was erect. Me, not registering what was happening, I thought something was wrong w/him! So I sat down on the floor w/him, was rubbing his face and head and talking to him to calm him and next thing I know, he "finished"!!, right there in the kitchen floor!! 2days later, he prolapsed. That time it was a much worse prolapse, the reason for the more invasive surgery. So, it has been 3 1/2 years since then and I'm not sure what the reason could be this time. No UTI. And he was neutered when he had the 2nd surgery at 7 months old.
    It just looks soooo different this time!?!
    Do u happen to know if this is just something that may happen every now and then, but it isn't actually a prolapse?

    I'm hoping so too! But the vets have said that a bully w/this issue could continue having this same issue over and over because there's still more lining to the penis... If we knew why or what causes it, it would aid in trying to fix it and keep it from reoccurring!
    Thanks!!

    Poor brodie and poor mommy. Knowing our bullies he probably doesn't even know what is up. Doesn't make it any easier for anybody

    Aww I'm so sorry your dealing with this again. Poor Bidie, I hope he gets better soon. Is surgery for sure for this?, or can this heal? Thinking of you and Bodie, sending hugs, love and prayers. Please keep us posted.
