Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Buster.

Is he neutered?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Thanks; this kind of discharge is normal in dogs that are not neutered. This could be an infection, or something irritating inside his prepuce.

What can I do until I get to the vet?

Is he urinating normally?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
usually about 30 minutes after he drinks water

That is good; this is probably not a urinary tract infection.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
What do I do until I can get to the vet?

If he is eating and urinating normally, I would not do anything. I might push back the prepuce to expose the actual penis, to see if it looks unusually red, or if there is anything irritating inside the prepuce, but you might wait for your veterinarian to do this.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

This may not be serious.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Please let me know how he is doing and if you have other questions and if my answer is helpful.
