    Default Discharge on penis

    My male two year old has a greenish yellow discharge on his penis. An infection?

    I am guessing you are seeing 'smegma', but running him by the Vet's office for a quick peak isn't the worst thing come morning. Is he neutered? Time to schedule that as well. If you watch the average dog for very long, you will see them lick themselves clean, but a cobby body and a short neck, zip muzzle breed is going to be hard pressed to do that.

    Could well be an infection. You can test the pH of his urine to find out. Go to the hardware store and buy litmus papers (they use them for testing soil) or ask your pharmacist if they have plain "pH papers" (they come in a roll in small box and cost about $10 or $12 - I can't get them locally anymore but you can buy them online here: Genuine Health pH PAPER - 1 ROLL - pH BALANCE - National Nutrition). If his urine tests between 6 and 7.5, he should be fine. If it is higher than that (a darker litmus result), he probably has an infection possibly leading to struvite crystals. You can tell for sure by taking a urine sample to the vet and having them do a urinalysis test (they look at it under the microscope and should be able to tell you immediately).

    My boy Taz used to have greenish pus coming out of his penis area a few times a year. The doctor gave me some liquid to flush out the area. I had to use a syringe (without a needle) and squeeze into the sheath then massage the area then try to push the excess fluid out which helps to clean out the sheath. Thank goodness my boy was a weirdo because he would just sit in my lap and let me do this to him. Mostly dogs who have not been altered get this issue, but dogs who have been altered can get it too.

    It could be nothing, as Ellen said....could be a UTI...but it also could be an infection inside the sheath itself. Yellow is normal..... a little green may or may not be a sign of infection. To be on the safe side, I think I'd have him checked.

    My boys have that once in awhile and my vet says it's "very" normal for boys.

    My dalmation used to get that also, it was nothing, he lived to a ripe old age of 13. But like everyone says if your not sure, take a trip to the vet.
