    My bully use to get that excited, but he never had any bleeding. The best thing is to distract him when it'starting so it may stop before is really full blown. In our case there was not much to doo if I didn't "catch it" in the beginning. There is also a hormone capsule what can be planted under the skin to hormonally castrate him. He wouldn't get that excited any more.

    They do have a non-surgical procedure that injects into the testacles to neuter and reduces testosterone levels by half. Its called Zeuterin but I didn't feel there was enough research for me. My dog sits when he gets an erection and it goes away. So while you can't prevent you can definitely calm the dog by having them sit or lay down.

    No experience with this but if the above techniques don't work for him,
    I'd suggest using belly bands (as they do for incontinence) to help with
    messiness.

    Give him hugs from us and hugs for you!

    Please update us with what you try & helps the most.

    Praying for y'all.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Bizarre behavior to say the least. I'm sorry to hear about your boy's health issues. I have no experience with what you describe but I can assure you that it's not normal and probably another medical issue to add to your laundry list.

    The only thing that comes to mind concerning these symptoms is urethral prolapse. Your Vet should be able to determine this with a physical exam.

    There is possibly some relevant info here...
    How would you manage a prolapsed urethra in an English Bulldog?

    I wish you and your boy the best of luck!

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    @Puzzles.... gets excited and then he has a*bleeding*issue when erect*? My question to the vet would be about the bleeding part? Ask the vet about Prostate disease.

    @Puzzles First, welcome to EBN. Please peruse the site and use the search function for a topic and there maybe a thread or two that may answer your question(s). For example (please see http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...ion-scare.html ). The link is only to one thread for the search term for "erect." Please read the thread to read what other EBNers have written.

    Although this may not be the condition Puzzles has but it may describe some symptoms that you may have observed.

    Well this is what I found on pet md.

    Paraphimosis and Phimosis in Dogs


    Phimosis is a condition that causes a dog to be unable to protrude its penis from its outer orifice. Paraphimosis, on the other hand, refers to the dog's inability to retract its penis back in to the sheath.

    Both of these medical conditions can occur in male dogs and cats, and at any age. If you would like to learn more about how phimosis and paraphimosis affect cats, please visit this page in the PetMD health library.

    Symptoms and Types


    The dog's inability to protrude its penis may go unnoticed until it tries to copulate with a female. Also, if the dog is having trouble urinating, it may be a sign of this medical disorder. If the animal experiences problems retracting its penis into the sheath, you may notice it licking the exterior of its penis. If it occurs over a prolonged period, there could also be fluid accumulation in the tissues (edema) or swelling in the area.

    Causes


    The inability to retract the penis (paraphimosis) often occurs when the dog has a small opening (orifice), and in many cases is a birth defect. If the dog is unable to protrude the penis (phimosis), it may have swelling, or hairs that are obstructing the penis. In some cases, injury or a neurological disease can cause this medical condition.

    Diagnosis

    With paraphimosis, the veterinarian will be able to view the exposed penis and/or gland areas upon examination. The goal is to identify the underlying medical cause for the condition for treatment options.

    Treatment


    In some instances surgery can help enlarge the opening of the sheath (orifice), making it possible for the penis to protrude. Also, veterinarians can remove tissue surrounding the penile area to allow for a normal, functioning penis.

    Immediate treatment is necessary for dogs that are unable to retract its penis into the sheath, as damage to the tissues can occur. Techniques to repair or aid in this medical condition can include removing any foreign objects that are present, lubricating the penile area for retraction, surgical enhancement of the orifice area if it is too small, and catheters if the dog is unable to urinate. At times, ointments and topical medications are prescribed to correct phimosis.

    Living and Management


    With treatment, both conditions have a positive prognosis. However, dogs that are unable to retract their penis into the shaft need immediate medical attention, as there are several complications that can occur if the penis is left outside of the body for extended periods of time.

    Prevention


    There are currently no known preventative methods for either medical condition.

    I hope this helps. --rj
