my daughter was just playing with bentley and he was on his back wanting his belly rubed and she said look mom something is wrong with bentley- so i looked and i felt what the bulge was up higher then where it should be . He was just neutered a week ago friday and i havnet noticed this ever happening before. is this normal for his testies to not stay where they are suppose to and go up twards his private? sorry i have alll girls and never had boys i dont know if this is normal that this happened or did something go wrong wtih his neuter? they did move back down but it was so werid how they were up in his stomach just about and it was very hard on both sides. silly i know..lol im thinking im silly for not knowing this- i dont want to call my vet and sound really stupid so i thought id ask here first and save myself some embaresment- he knows me you all dont..lol theresa
Yeah, it does appear at first that the scrotum is still full, for the first few days, anyways, but after awhile it begins to shrivel up and eventually, depending on the dog, it ends up looking like a lil skin tag, or in some it doesnt show up at all anymore.
And ok :) Lipstick it is then.
I say blood pooling, but im not entirely sure what specifically it is, that just makes sense to me.. but it's definitely a result of them getting happy/excited/whatever.
Dogs have a large rounded muscle on their penile shaft which enlarges when they breed to form a knot. This knot is used to lock the male and female together so that hte sperm is delivered past the cervex without backing out.
It is a part of the peni$ so it will enlarge when the dog is aroused.
THe scrotum is not descened heavily in a puppy becuase the testicles are under developed and do not need to bounce up and down. A young dogs scrotum has not stretched. Once neutered the scrotum may be slightly swollen from trama from having the testicles removed and the ligiments snapped. However this will eventually receede into a pouch of empty that may or may not go away.
Altered dogs can gain a certain point of arousal. Because the dogs peni$ is in a sheath the tip of the peni$ leaves the sheath. Since it is a mucus membrain it is pink or red in color, although it should not appear inflamed or bloody in color.
So you think also though, that that is what is being seen here? Considering if it's testicles he didnt actually get neutered, the way it was described sounds like those bulging muscles things, I'd say.
It is a gland that swells when they get excited. It usually swells to the size of a golf ball and lies along the shaft of the dog. I called the emergency vet one night after coming home (rocky was jumping all over me), it scared the crap outta me, I thought he had a tumor lol. They assured me that its normal in male dogs. It goes away after a couple minutes right???
sorry didn't read previous posts, this was mentioned already

I didnt think he had his testicles still but i was unsure i guess after being neutered if they did take them out or what they really did. i did notice tho after being neutered he didnt have them back there like he use to so i assumed they removed them untill what just happened. so this is normal then and nothing to worry about? i wouldnt say he was excieted she just rolled him on his back like we always do and she noticed it before even rubbing his belly and i came over ( he was just laying with me on the couch) and i seen what ever it was and yes it was by his peni$ and i felt it trying to figure out what it was and it was hard like it was his jewels and then it went away with in a min or so when he walked away and then i rechecked it- i thought something went wrong when he was neutered. so this will happen when hes excieted? i thought they didnt have the hormone things anymore? and all the belly rubs i give him ive never seen this before- and its plain as day when my daughter noticed something was wrong. ( shes 14) so no need to call a vet and tell him something is wrong/lol thank good ness i didnt because i was going to call the vet and then my daughter told me it went away. lol so this will happen often? only if hes excieted? never heard of such a thing before but i learn something new every day im on here. thanks
Im so gald Im not the only one who has called the vet because of wang problems.
When i called i didnt know the correct terms for a dog. I had no clue they were the same used for men so I was telling the vet that rocky was sleeping and the couch got all wet and his pink thing was sticking out. the vet asked what time it happend I told him then he freaked asking if it was still sticking out i said no if it was i would have had him in there. then he started to laugh and explained that the pink think was his peni$ and that he had a wet dream. My face turned red and I stoped talking he said no worried if it bugs you bring him in adn we can get him fixed. I said It didnt bug me i was just worried because i didnt know a dog could do that
thanks for the link that info really helped and im sure that is what was going on.. wow i didnt think he would still get excieted now that he was neutered i thought that took his sex drive away? or what ever dogs have? guess not? so this could happen alot if i have a overly excietable dog? lol just my luck i get the poor thing neutered for this reason ( humping cat and stuffed animals) and i thought that having him fixed would stop all of this behavor but i guess i was wrong..lol thanks tho that really did help
Yep, there is a 'knot' on the shaft about half way from the testes to the end of his p*nis. That knot is normal and will remain even after neutering. Also he will still, 'show a bit of himself" even after the neuter, lol
I didnt read the entire thread, sorry. So if I repeated any/all of this...ignore me.
