This answer was rated:

My dog has white puss like liquid coming out his penis. He is a rescured dog and about 11 years old. He is a yellow lab and he is eating fine and seems fine. What is it and what can I do for him. I do not have lot of money for a vet so if there is anything I can buy to help? Thank you Dianne XXXX

Welcome! I would be happy to assist you. I am a 2003 graduate from UC Davis and a Medical Director of a veterinarian practice.

Sometimes, a little discharge from the penis can be normal. It is called Smegma.

However, if it is persisting, getting worse, or the penis is also beginning to look inflamed, or Duncan is licking a lot down there, you must get into a vet. It can be an indicator of a prepucial infection. That is, an infection of the shealth that is holding the penis.

Generally, wouldn't be too costly. Exam and antibiotics. A urine test would be storngly recommended and I would encourage it, but not a must.

Hope that info helps

REMEMBER: Even after you submit feedback, you can still review our discussion or reply if needed. Unfortunately, I cannot legally prescribe medications or offer a definitive diagnosis without performing a physical examination, which is necessary to establish a client-patient-doctor relationship. Any medical therapy and treatment should only be performed after an in-person examination with your veterinarian. While information may be discussed, this is not intended as an encouragement for you to self treat your pet.
