Q. Our dogs are neutered. One of them cannot extrude his penis and seems to be in pain from it with some bleeding from trying. Can anything be done?

Answered By

A. This can happen. If you are able to use a lubricant like KY jelly you can try and get it back in on its own. If it is bleeding though he is likely very sore already and may not take this well. You are best to have vet intervention so they can sedate him if needed. It's a very painful condition.
