    Default Prolapsed Urethra

    Took Einstein out to do his business yesterday evening and when he came inside I noticed quite a large pool of blood where he sat down for his treat. He stood up and I could see blood dripping from his penis. Naturally I freaked and called the vet. I took him right in.

    Of course I had to work that night and knew I was going to be late. But my coworkers are amazing and know that Einstein is my baby. It stopped bleeding on the drive there (it's an hour drive to his vet) But when we got there it started bleeding again. The vet said he has a prolapsed urethra. They had to put a catheter in and clamp off the end that prolapsed.

    And worst of all he has to stay there until probably the end of the week. I could hardly hold back the tears at the vet's office. I've never left him anywhere. Once we left him there just during the day after he had eye surgery, but got to bring him home in the evening. I'm having lots of anxiety because I know he's really nervous in a strange place. Has anybody else had this happen to their bully?

    Awwww. I feel terrible for you, worrying about your pup so. Dogs are adaptable, resilient creatures and the pain meds they may have him on, will help him sleep thru the stress of being at the doctor's office. Did you try the "Search" function at the top of the page here at EBN? Just typing in "urethra" OR "prolapsed" should get you some older posts about it. Someone will come along with experience on this!

    Aw I am so sad, I can hear your tears in your post

    I have not exp this either, but I do know others have gotten this fixed by having them neutered, has he already been fixed?

    Hey there! I am so sorry you and your boy are going through this

    Brutus prolapsed his urethra at 8 months and it was very messy! The first day it happed we rushed to the vet who said we needed to have surgery to not only repair the prolapse but also neuter him to prevent reoccurrence! Well we went ahead and did both! We took Brutus home early and exactly one week later he prolapsed again its common to happen again but I think he popped a stich out!

    The surgey is invasive so please make sure you trust your vet and I would see how many he has performed before! It's not an easy surgery from what we were told! Brutus still has the red ball on the tip of his penis. After surgery he still bled for about 2 weeks that was bc reoccurrence! Others had the surgey and bleeding stopped instantly! It all differs from case to case!

    Wow this was long! I'm here if you need anything!

    If they want him to stay! I know how hard it will be but it's best for him! I feel bc we took Brutus home after 3 days maybe that's why it reoccurred! I have positive thoughts all will be okay!

    He will be okay and I'm sure they are going to love on him for you! Hugs and more hugs! If you need someone to talk just pm me

    Thank you all so much for your kind words. I'm calling first thing in the morning for an update. @desertskybulldogs he has been neutered. He was young...cant remember exactly whenever they suggested it be done. @ChanelnBrutus we do trust our vet. He sees lots of bulldogs. Not sure if this something that happens to their breed more or just any dog. Thank you for your advice. How long ago did this happen to Brutus? Poor guy.

    Remy just had one in June! He had the surgery to fix it and neutered at the same time and no bleeding ever again! My surgery didn't cost as much as Brutus'. I took him to Michigan State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital and the surgeon had just developed and published a new procedure so he only charged me $100 for the prolapse and $150 for the neutering. Remy had to stay from Tuesday until Friday but didn't come home on any pain meds and this was the first thing he did once he got home -76548_4802406496735_1748430017_n-jpg stitches in two places doesn't seem to phase him!

    Einstein will be good as gold when he comes home!
