    Default My Bully's prostate is enlarged.

    So today I found a drop of blood on the floor where Ulysses had been lying. After checking him all over I realized that it came out of his penis. That said, I packed my stuff and rushed to the vet. She first tried to examine his prostate, but apparently couldn't find it because it is enlarged. Then she did an ultrasound, and didn't find anything "bad". So the conclusion was that his prostate might enlarged due to over-excitement, meaning there might be a bitch in heat somewhere around that is driving my boy nuts. I am relieved that she didn't find anything, but I'm still worried, I mean is blood out of his privates! Does anyone has any experience with this?

    Usko has had this twice the second time it got really bad and when it gets bad it can get inflamed and extremely painful, Usko could hardly walk. Usko got an injection to make the prostate smaller and some antibiotics. If Ulysses is not there yet try giving him Saw palmetto, that is the same herb that is used with humans with the same condition.

    We had this happen to Brutus but it was a prolapsed urethra. He was an agressive humper at times...It started with a few drops here and there and within a couple days it was squirting out alot. The vet had to do emergency surgey to correct the prolapse and neuter 3 grand later there are no more issues..Just keep an eye on him...Does it look as if there is a red ball on his private?

    Is Ulysses neutered? Chunk's prostate was enlarged (with no symptoms of blood) and neutering him took care of it!

    Another great reason to choose to neuter!

    Yes definitely @Vicaroo1000! I wish we had the option to have him neutered as a pup ... But we didn't get him until 2 years old and weren't in a rush ... Til the prostate issue. It was definitely a longer recovery for him at 3 1/2 years old!

    I hope Usko feels better now. Yeah! the vet said something about some medicine to make his prostate smaller again, but she said we should wait a bit for it and see how it goes. She is kind of against giving to much medicines (which I really like) because he was on antibiotics just a few weeks ago. I will try to find the herb you mentioned, I really like to try the natural stuff when possible. Thanks for the advice!

    Thank you for sharing. I'm so happy to hear from people who have more experience with this. Well, he does have a red little ball on the tip of his private every now and then, and I told the vet it can also get really really really purple and swollen every two days or so, but she repeatedly told me it was normal. I just hope he doesn't need any surgery or anything invasive. For the moment I am keeping an eye on him and hopefully this will go away on its own. He seemed fine today. I'm happy to hear Brutus is doing fine, I hope my boy feels better soon too.

    No, Ulysses is not neutered. I actually asked the vet about it yesterday because I've been thinking about having the procedure done for months, and with this problem it seemed a good approach, but she told me she doesn't recommend it at all, because bullies tend to be overweight and neutering him will probably just cause him more troubles, rather than benefits, especially respiratory. I am actually very confused about it now, because since he was a baby our previous vet always told us that after 6 or 8 months we should get him neutered, but now the new vet has a total different view... so I'm having doubts about it

    If you're not going to breed him..he will be much better off getting neutered in the long run. There is a difference of opinion as to what age to neuter, but the benefits will outnumber the risks. Let's get @Davidh here..he has tons of experience with this.
