My dog is 14 months old and I noticed that he leaks urine slightly while on the couch. He is a Chihuahua and Jack Russell mix.


Is this something I should be concerned abou? He is neutered.

Vet Suggestion Regarding Leak From Dog Penis

Hello,

If your dog is truly leaking urine, you should definitely bring him in to your veterinarian for an exam. This could be a sign of a urinary tract infection, anatomic abnormalities, bladder dysfunction, bladder stones, and more.

It is possible, however, that what you are noticing is simply the normal material produced by your dog’s accessory sex glands. This liquid will sometimes collect at the end of a dog’s penis and leave a small wet mark behind when it is rubbed off. Your veterinarian should be able to tell you if what you are seeing is normal after a physical exam.

Regards,

Jennifer Coates, DVM

bleeding from penis NEW
by: Sylvia Dickens

My dog does leak urine a bit, I think, but he also is bleeding from his penis. He actually drips urine sometimes. It was more than usual this time, possibly a teaspoon. The vet thinks he was not properly neutered and this is causing an inflammation of the prostate which is causing the bleeding.

She suggests exploratory neuter, but I'm concerned this might not be the answer. The blood test did show a testosterone level a little above what it should be if he were neutered.

Can the bleeding also be caused by the things you mention in your response to the original poster?

Thanks.

Sylvia
