We took him to the vets and he got a week of antibiotics which seemed to almost clear it up. The vet said she didn't want to give him another week as it could upset the natural balance in his body.
Anyway a few weeks later and it is back again as bad as it was at the begining. Hes going back to the vets to see what they say but thats not for a day or so.
I have been giving goats milk which he adores and that seems to slow the discharge down
George isn't neutered as our vets said they didn't advise it for a number of reasons all of which have been debated numerous times (neutering in the UK /Europe is still seen as a big issue and often pedigrees are not done) I have no issue with it either way and if it stops it then I'm happy to have it done (though I imagine George will probably be less happy )
I was wondering if anyone else has come across this problem and what they did about it.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
|My Brothers Staffy used to have this problem, they played the on and off the antibiotics route for ages, I am not sure what the resolution was, next time I speak to him I'll ask what they did (If I remember that is!)|
|Interesting article, but you'll have to get beyond "boy bits"
OK, he's not licking but here's another article: http://www.petplace.com/dogs/licking-of-genital-area-in-dogs/page1.aspx

Sounds like typical boy stuff to me. Neutering should clear it up and I'm sure George won't be as effected by it being done as you will.
|We took George back to the vets and they insisted there was nothing wrong and said to keep him clean and make sure he ate properly etc.
That was a couple of weeks ago. We did what they said and although there is still some discharge it has slowed to almost nothing)
My husband has just rang me at work to say he has noticed some blood in with the discharge.
I'm trying to get an appointment to get George to see the vet TODAY. (their phones are currently not working so might just have to take him in)
Has anyone ever come across this before?
I've tried searching the net but can't find anything!
|Sorry to hear George is having problems. Hope you can get in touch with the vet soon. Keep us posted!|
|A small amount of discharge is pretty normal in males, intact and castrated - my ball-less wonder has it too. (and right on cue Che is giving himself a quick lick Thanks, dude) A funny color/smell and blood can definitely signify some kind of infection -- the blood makes me wonder about crystals, but I'm sure your vet will know.
One thing you can do if you don't already is remove the hair on his penis, especially at the opening (wonderful conversation to be having at the crack of dawn ) so the discharge doesn't make the hair stick together and become a breeding ground for bacteria.
|Well George has been to the vets to have his check. I saw a new vet who was great and is a fan of OES which is always good
His prostrate is a little swollen, which isn't good for a young dog. He has been given a course of antibiotics for 10 days and he has been given and injection which is a "false neuter" It stops him producing hormones etc. (its probably much more technical than that)
He has to go back in a week or so to see what has happened and to decide what happens next.
George was very good even when he got an internal, although he did cock his leg and wee in the reception. Little monster I could have killed him!
He's tired now and needs to sleep off his ordeal.
|Awww poor george, hope the prostrate settles down with treatment. If he is having these problems at such a young age then talk to the vet about when it has gone down to maybe having him Neutered to prevent future problems in the prostrate department.|
