Hey guys,

So lately things have been hectic, with me starting a new job (remote), and my kids going to school full time here at home, I’ve been crazy busy. But yesterday, I noticed Brisket sitting on the edge of his dog bed, and the tip of his penis was red and swollen. It Looks inflamed and in a donut shape. From what I have seen online, it looks like a prolapsed urethra, but he hasn’t complained or acted any different. I don’t think it bothers him. I read that it can often reappear after treatment, and if it does not cause any discomfort is not a big deal. Does anyone have any experience with this? There’s no excessive licking or anything, and he urinates regularly. I had been putting antibiotic ointment before until I was able to find out what it was. He has a vet appointment on Friday. But hoping to hear from others so that I’m not talked into an unnecessary surgery.

No personal experience but usually a prolapsed urethra is like a bloody crime scene. Not sure if it starts out like what you’re describing but I’d probably do a vet visit. Neutering is usually recommended for a prolapsed urethra.

Jake has a vasectomy so basically he has all still going n his looks like that on n off n it’s not prolapsed urethra.

Vet visit is good to rule out or not prolapsed urethra. Usually it bleeds n you didn’t mentioned that...

No his does not bleed at all, he doesn’t lick it and it doesn’t bother him. I don’t even think he has noticed it. That’s what puzzles me. I use a q-tip to put antibiotic ointment on it and it doesn’t seem to hurt.

���� that’s true!!!

Update tho! I continued using the ointment, and the swelling seems to have gone down and it went from a dark red tip to a darker pink but it seems to be getting better. I’m hoping it was just some small type of infection. Still have an appointment Friday. But hoping it’ll be better by then

It’s a male, need to release themselves. I’m sure he’s fine... keep us posted...
