I just got home...

I just got home from work. I noticed my walker coonhound has what seems to be like testicles at the base of his member. He has been neutered though, any ideas what they could be?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the Coonhound?

He seems to have two hard objects, like testacles at the base of his member. But he has been neutered. Any thoughts?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the Coonhound seem to hurt?

He doesn't seem to hurt. It just seems odd to me.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. What is the Coonhound's name and age?

Elway, he is 5 or6

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Coonhound's name?

Elway

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Elway?

He had struvite crystals removed from his bladder a little over a year ago.

The bulbus glandis (also called a knot) is an erectile tissue structure on the penis of dogs. During mating the tissues swell up and lock (tie) immediately after penetration of the male's penis inside the female. Sometimes when a male dog gets excited you will notice that these glands will swell up. Many people get confused by these glands especially if they have had their pets neutered, however these glands have nothing to do with having the testicles removed at the time of castration.
