Q. Hi, my dog started chewing his penis often, started after he went out to pee on a cold canadian day. Now his penis is half white half red. I have pics

A. Different disease may possibly affect his penis at the moment and give the same signs of discomfort; so it is not possible to give you a straightforward answer at this stage.I would suggest to try to stop him from licking (a buster collar would be helpful and to take him to your veterinarian before he can auto-traumatize himself. By a physical examination, your veterinarian will be able to give you more specific informations about what is going on.

Even though it would have been helpful, unfortunately you can post pictures only in the consultation section (if you request one).
