my friend has a male boxer. he was laying down then when we were about to take him & the other dogs out, he stood up and his thing was swollen and red lk if he had a rash. well when he started walking, he sat right back down and didnt wanna move. we dont kno if hes in pain but he moves a little.
what do u think it is?
my friend said that its done that before and that the swelling will go down after awhile but she never knew what it was.

Are you speaking of his outer genetalia that is under his belly and the skin was red and swollen...or do you mean that his inner part...the p*nis that comes out thwen they are excited or breeding was out of the shaft and was red and swollen?
If it is his regular outer parts that were red, etc...he needs checked by a vet.
If you are referring to his internal part that had come out...this is normal...when they breed or are excited, it will extend out, is red and swells when they are breeding and it will go down in time.
Is there any females near him, especially any in heat or intact?
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain.
That does happen sometimes, and most often the swelling will go down and the p3nis will retract on its own. Sometimes though the swelling will not go down and you need to intervene. If that ever happens take a wash cloth and soak it in cold water and put some sugar on it. Hold it over the p3nis for a few minutes and then try to work it back inside the sheath. If you don't feel comfortable doing it then take him to your vet and they will do it for you.
I've had to do that to some older puppies that get "excited" and can't retract themselves. My method is a little different. I just lube the point where the knot and the sheath are in contact with KY jelly or something similar then squish firmly to "deflate" it (knot and pen*s), then pull the sheath back over the pen*s.
Anyway I'm curious Scout, what does the sugar do?
