My 6 yr old male Schitz Tzu has swelling to both testicles &

Customer Question

My 6 yr old male Schitz Tzu has swelling to both testicles & anal area. It started a few days ago but today he is unable to jump on couch and just appears uncomfortable. I did not see any bloody stool. He seems very cautious trying to sit down and occasionally turns back to lick his penis. I'm just wondering what might be wrong. I plan on taking him to vet tomorrow but I want to make sure this is not an emergency situation. Thanks you

Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I"m happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

Is he still eating/drinking normally?

Is he urinating/defecating normally?

How swollen would you say they are?
