    Default Prolapsed urethra

    We are taking our boy in for what I believe to be a prolapsed urethra. Just wondering if anyone has experienced this before? And what the treatment was?

    My pup had it. He came in from outside and started bleeding from his penis. The vet gave meds, pushed it back in (it looked like a ball of blood) and said we should get him fixed. Haven't had a problem since

    That is the exact same as what happened to diesel, he came in from outside and that's when I noticed the blood. I am happy it was a simple fix. We are planning on getting him fixed anyways, so that's Not a problem for us. Thanks!!

    We just got home from the vet. Diesel is booked for surgery Monday to push back and sew in the prolapsed urethra, as well as to get fixed! Thanks for all your help!

    I never thought to ask that, but they're a very highly recommended vet in our city - and so far we've had no problems with them. I am wondering though, we were told to wait a year to fix him by our vet - she said he wouldn't develop properly. We are obviously going to fix him early though now (8 months) because health is more important than looks. But just wondering if the difference is going to be that noticeable

    For the surgery - Just make sure they do NOT use ACE, and also confirm that they monitor closely when coming out of anesthesia & the hours right after. Those are the most critical for bullies due to their breathing.

    Not sure about the neuter - since we didn't neuter Tyson until he was 8 yrs old for health reasons. @2BullyMama - what do you think?

    Mt vet opinion has always been to neuter anytime after 8 months of age-- have done all my makes at that age without any development issues
