Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It is not unusual to have a discharge from the penis called "smegma" and this will be even more when he is not neutered. There can be an infection causing this if the discharge is pus like and constant so it is best to have your vet check this. This may or may not be related to his lethargy since this could be a normal occurance for your guy Rusty. For now, give Rusty aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs with food to see if this lethargy is due to pain from somewhere. If it is, Rusty will respond well to this.
Have your vet check Rusty to be sure we have not missed something.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
