Dear Dr Nimmo
I am sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
Everything went fine. At about 11PM, after our correspondence, I lubricated Keiser's penis with pure sunflower cooking oil. It seemed swollen at the tip - resembling a bulb. With some gentle manipulation for about 5 minutes, I was able to place about half of the penis into the foreskin sheath. It also seemed that the swelling at the tip of the penis disappeared.
Kaiser was not in any distress at all at any time. I then took him and my other dog out for a small walk. I was unable to determine if he urinated (I was in much distress).
Kaiser then went to sleep and I awoke him at about 2AM for another walk. His penis was still halfway outside of the foreskin sheath. Keiser did urinate several time and when we returned home I was very relieved to see that the penis had completely retracted into the foreskin.
I think he was bitten by insect in the dog park as it is now the hottest days of south Florida's summer and we had returned from there at about 7:30 PM. Kaiser has a habit of scratching his bottom on the grass.
Obviously because everything ended well and I avoided the stress and costs of the veterinary emergency room I rate your services more than just "OK" and I will add a bonus for services.
