    Default Worried about Finn's privates

    There's always something, isn't there? Well, got home about an hour ago and came to find a couple blood droplets on the floor. I looked at both boys, examining their paws, and nothing there. I noticed Finn's penis was very red so I dabbed a tissue on it and discovered that's where the blood was coming from. It's not like there is blood dripping right now...but when i dab at it, there's still some faint colored blood on the tissue. Of course I'm worried but i'm hopeful it's nothing serious. I'm just wondering if anyone here has experienced anything like this w/their male bullie? Finn is almost 7mos old and has not yet been neutered. I wonder if it's a UTI? He's acting quite normal...eating well, playing a lot, very naughty as usual. I will likely be taking him to the vet tomorrow a.m. to get him checked out.

    He may have just scratched it on something, I would just check it in the morning and see if it is better.

    I'm hoping that's the case--that he scratched it on something vs. an infxn or something more invasive. I did notice they somehow stripped the side of my book shelf--took this piece of plaster off that has sharp edges so i'm wondering if he injured himself w/that. I'm going to move that shelf to a room they cannot get into. My house is becoming more furniture-bare. My sofa has been thrown out b/c they chewed down to the frame and there was metal sticking out of it (!)...pretty soon the living rm will just be an empty box with wee wee pads on the floor, their beds, and toys scattered about.

    I will keep an eye on Finn's "pee pee" , um, as we call it here
    Hopeful that it's nothing serious! thank-you!

    Sorry, don't have any experience with peepee bleeding. Yeah...I'm down to two armchairs in the family room. I keep catching BabyGirl trying to chew my tv cabinet. When I bust her she just rolls over legs up as if to surrender. I just hand her one of the antlers to chew on. Today I caught Wilson and BabyGirl doing a tug-of-war on a sock I accidentally dropped while doing laundry. They looked so happy to have found it but I can't take the chance of them eating it so I had to be the "bad cop" and took it away.

    Bo does something similar when you ask him to get off the couch - but he's already laying down.

    Sounds as if it's just a scratch but it's a good idea to keep an eye on it.

    Don't worry, your living room can just be a puppy play room.

    This morning the bleeding is still there. I noticed some very bright red droplets on the floor and one drop was about dime-size and a little clot-like. When I dab at the penis, there's blood on the tissue again. I'm gonna need to take him into the vet this morning to get checked out. I hope he doesn't have an obstruction somewhere. I hate this! They can sense when i'm concerned too b/c they'll both just sit there quietly and look at me as i go about my morning chores. I also need to call into work that i won't be in, for the morning at least. Please say a prayer for Finn. He's acting very normal--eating well, slept well last night, fighting w/Tate. I hope everything will be okay!

    It sounds like an inverted urethra. I know because wally had this problem too when he was about 4 months old. We would wake up and there would be drops of blood in his crate and other times it would drip blood when he was simply walking around. He developed it by running full speed and trying to slide on the carpet under our futon on his belly and everything else down there. The condition can come from this or chronic, excessive masturbation (vets term, not mine) like rubbing himself on the carpet or in the crate. Because of this, we had him neutered at 4.5 months before we realized the problem was the futon and simply took the legs off of it (we had never seen him humping the carpet or anything). The problem can be more or less serious depending on the case. You should bring him to the vet so they can check. Sometimes they will try to put a stitch in the urethra to hold it in place, other times, like for Wally, they will just leave it and hope it fixes itself as he grows, which luckily it did in his case. There is quite a bit of info out there, just try to google inverted urethra. Let us know how the visit to the vet goes.
    Hope that helps.
