Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long have you been seeing these signs?

Does he have any changes to urination (going more often, passing small volumes, straining, blood)?

Any sores or wounds on the penis?
