I was just checking a few things regarding unusual licking

Hello. I was just checking a few things regarding unusual licking from my one male (neutered) dog (3yrs old) of his penis/ sheath area. Earlier today, I noticed a fair amount of discharge and took his temperature and it was slightly elevated. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: He is not "sexually active" but does tend to hump some of his fluffy toys and I am slightly concerned he may have a UTI and wondered if small doses of penicillin would do the trick. I am a clinical pharmacist and my significant other is a surgical nurse so we both understand potential baterial infections

My dog has daily swelling between all of his toes that

my dog has daily swelling between all of his toes that doesn't include any sores, itching, cut or any sign of trauma. After exercise it can get worse and the conjunctiva, pink of his eyes, gets blood red. I thought food allergy at first and have gone from beef/venison, to poultry, to fish, with no visible improvement or change. My vet has no idea at the moment since there is no evidence of any allergies. He is a large breed, Brazilian mastiff, or Fila Brasileiro.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is your dog bleeding a lot?Customer: Not at all, and his appetite is fine, he goes to the bathroom fine, and other than the swelling,, which can occasionally cause a sore from the rubbing, he ha hasn't had any issues. He is still an intact male though until around 18 month when his growth plates close, and I will have him neutered.JA: Phew. What is the dog's name?Customer: JinxJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jinx?Customer: That is all. I am at a loss as to the reason for the swelling.. He has no itching, no hair loss, no scratching really, just an occasional itch. No flea problems or parasites. He's had all of his vaccinations.

I asked you a question a few weeks ago about my dog with

I asked you a question a few weeks ago about my dog with incontinence and urinary urgency. Since then, he has been treated with augmentin and enrofloxaxin for UTI/prostatitis. X- ray showed enlarged prostate; digital exam revealed prostate was enlarged, but not tender. U/a sent to lab showed hematuria, no crystals, and no indications of neoplasm. All these tests were conducted prior to the switch from augmentin to enrofloxaxin. After 2 weeks of enrofloxaxin , he is still having urgency and incontinence. Additionally, I have now noticed tenesmus. My research leads me to believe his symptoms are likely caused by BPH. Do you concur, and if so , what tx would you recommend? Additionally, he was neutered about 4 years ago after he took up residence with us.
