Hello this is Dr. RB:) How long has Buddy's penis been extracted out of the sheath? You will need to keep it lubricated with warm water until you are able to get it back into the sheath. I would not use antibiotic ointment but use petroleum jelly all the way around the mucosa to help pull the sheath back over the penis. This will most likely take two people; one to hold and one to coax it back in. If you attempt this for 30 minutes or so OR if Buddy becomes angry/anxious you will most likely need to take him in to your regular DVM to help you. You do not want to allow it stay out for long to compromise blood flow to the penis and/or leave it vulnerable to external trauma as well as possible occlusion to the urethral opening. I hope this is helpful to you..
