Hello,

I am Dr. Snow, and I can try and help you. How old is your dog and what breed?

Ok, sorry got disconnected for a minute. Is he having trouble urinating? Any straining when he tries to pee or acting like hes peeing with nothing coming out?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No not at all I've looked for that when letting him out and that hasn't been an issue
Dog Specialist: Sarah Snow,

Ok, are you seeing the blood when he is urinating or at other times? Is it in his urine stream or just dripping from his penis?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It just drips. Like if he lays down on a blanket there will be drops of blood after he gets up. He seems to lick down there A good amount of time
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
He doesn't seem to be in any pain
Dog Specialist: Sarah Snow,

Ok, gotcha. There could be several things going on:

He could have an infection in his penis or prepuce, or even a mass on his penis thats bleeding.

Other possibilities would be prostate disease or urinary stones, although both of these issues generally cause issues with urination.

Sometimes, even an injury to his penis can cause intermittent bleeding, especially if he is licking at it.

Since it has been 2 weeks, it really should be looked at by his veterinarian. Your vet can examine his penis and prepuce and look for any signs of trauma or infection. He/she could also feel for any prostate abnormalities and get a urine sample to make sure there's no urinary tract infection or evidence of stones.

There's not much you're going to be able to do from home other than try to keep him from licking it, keep it clean if necessary, and monitor his urinations!

Please post back with further questions,

Dr. Snow
