HiCustomer
It is probably not a hemorrhoid; we don't see them often in dogs. Preparation H won't hurt, but if it is a tumor, it may not help either. If it bleeds, as time goes by it will probably bleed more and more. The best thing to do is to have it removed, both to stop the bleeding and any discomfort it may be causing. If it gets too big, it may not be possible to remove it all. If the Preparation H doesn't help, as I suspect it won't, I would have him checked by a veterinarian soon. Good luck, Rebecca
