Hi thereCustomer

I have a few more questions to help me best know how to help you and your dog:
- what kind of dog is he, and how old?
- when did the bleeding start?
- was there any trauma or was he breeding another dog?
- is there any association with urination?
- is it bleeding constantly or just intermittantly?

Thanks for the extra information.
The dog is a full black pit bull and is going to be four years old.

His started bleeding close to an hour. His penis tip is enlarged and dripping blood.

He has been trying to breed with our two year old female for the past couple of days.

Urination-both dogs are inside. He waits to go outside, but I haven't seen him pee just yet. She goes in the house. He does tend to drink her pee if we don't catch him.

Bleeding-he seems to be consistently dripping blood. Not an excessive amount just drops.
Thank you so much for the extra information.

Since your guy is dripping blood, the tip of his penis is enlarged, and since he was trying to breed, I am most worried he has an injury to the tip of the penis, and that he may not be able to retract the penis back into the prepuce (skin covering the penis). Trauma to the penis is very common with breeding, and needs to be checked. This is something that definitely needs to be evaluated by a veterinarian, as they may need to use medications on the penis if the swelling is excessive, and the bleeding may need further treatment. I am including a link to help you find an emergency veterinarian in your area in case you don't already have one in mind.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help. Good luck with your poor pup!
