Hi this is Dr. Aaron

Please let me know when you're available.

This can be very serious.

I would definitely take him to your local vet / ER vet as soon as possible.

Dogs can have their penises stuck out for multiple reasons but regardless of the is important to return to its' normal location otherwise the exposed tissue can lose blood flow and eventually become necrotic.

Sometimes there is a small hair that is wrapped around the penis...if this is the case then we will need to cut the hair and replace the penis into the prepuce/sheath. Other times medications need to be applied to decrease swelling to allow the penis to be replaced.

Please feel free to ask any further questions but I strongly suggest a trip the vet ASAP :)

I would greatly appreciate a positive rating so that I may be compensated for my time.

Have a good night!
