How to Handle Dog Disease – Inflammation of the Prepuce

While this condition is basically harmless it turns into a nuisance for the pet owner because a discharge drips continuously from the dog’s penis.


There is a continuous, creamy, yellowish discharge from the penis .In the beginning phase dripping is associated with movement. Later the discharge occurs even while the dog is lying down. The dog is found licking his penis continuously.

Dog Disease Prepuce

In some cases the discharge may be thick, green-yellow, and odorless, while in other cases it may appear liquid, odorous and irritating to the skin. If the condition remains untreated in the early stages, it is likely to turn into a chronic problem that rarely responds to therapy.


Most perpetual inflammations are caused by bacteria. Sometimes the inflammation may be caused by penile hairs that become retracted into the prepuce and cause irritations in their contact area. Lack of hygiene of the penile skin is another frequent cause that can be prevented.


Use diluted Calendula essence to rinse the space between the prepuce and the penis by squirting the liquid through a 10cc syringe. The dog must be lying on its side for this procedure. Place a flat container under the penis and squirt the solution gently into the tissue pocket between the penis and the prepuce. Hold the opening closed gently between your fingers, and massage the area carefully backwards .Then allow the liquid to empty into the catching container. The previously colorless liquid should now be milky or cloudy. In this way you are rinsing out the bacterial contamination. Repeat the procedure, and perform the treatment twice each day.
