Hi, this is Dr. Gabby.So there are a few possibilities.If he is urinating more frequently then he could have a urinary tract infection. The inflammation in the lining of the urinary tract can cause bleeding.He could have also scratched the penis and now it is bleeding and the blood is dripping out the sheath. Or, if he scratched the tip then the tip could be bleeding.If he will let you push the sheath back and examine the penis for injury. You can clean any wounds with a little 3% hydrogen peroxide and apply a little Neosporin antibiotic cream.If it does not stop bleeding in an hour then he should see the ER vet.If you notice he is urinating more frequently then he probably has a urinary tract infection. In that case a vet will need to check his urine and prescribe antibiotics.Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
