Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- How long has this been going on?
2- Is it bothering him?
3- Is the lump below or above the skin?
Can you post a picture on this thread for me to see?
Friend, there is no reason to be embarrassed, always best to double check. But, as you suspected it sounds like the swelling you were seeing is the bulbis glandis which is erectile tissue of the penis in male dogs, this is normal.
Have a great day. Happy Thanksgiving as well.
