Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today! I am so sorry to hear this is happening to your dog! I can give you some basic guidelines to try to reduce this occurrence but if it continues then he should be seen by your veterinarian because this can affect his ability to urinate and can become an emergency.This condition is called paraphimosis or inability to contract the penis. Below is a link to information on this condition in dogs:http://www.petplace.com/article/dogs/diseases-conditions-of-dogs/reproduction/paraphimosis-and-phimosis-in-dogsRecommendations include:- No licking! Licking introduces oral bacteria and can result in a urinary tract infection - Using KY jelly or vaseline to lubricate the penis and attempt putting it back into the sheath or prepuce- If this is successful, pinching the foreskin over the penis for a few moments to ensure it doesn't recur- If not successful and the penis is swollen you can use granulated sugar to draw out the moisture then retry the lubrication in hopes of retracting the penisAgain if this continues I would advise a veterinary exam so they can help return the penis to the sheath. If left exposed and not maintain a moist environment it can lead to necrosis or dying of the exposed tissue and in severe cases amputation. I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today. I hope this resolves soon...
