Hello again

Sorry to hear your dog is uncomfortable, however I have worked out an answer for you ...

1. This is a situation which happens now and again and the technical term for it is paraphimosis, the usual problem is that he is unable to retract his foreskin because of his recent erection. The trapped foreskin can prevent blood flow from the penis and swelling can occur thus making it more difficult for things to return to normal.

1. The first thing to try is to gently lubricate the shaft of the penis, use a lubricant gel if you have access to any, or just lots of soap and water and gently try to retract and unroll the foreskin back to it's normal position.

2. Another approach is to make up a warm saturated sugar solution and place the dog's penis in it if this is possible say using a large container, otherwise just poultice the penis with the solution using kitchen paper soaked in the solution, but saturate the whole area. This very often works because of an osmosis effect of the sugar, you have to do this for about twenty minutes though.

3. However if you cannot resolve the situation by the above common sense sorts of means then you should have your vet take a look as soon as possible before permanent damage occurs as is possible if the penis is extruded for any length of time.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
