(A) Testicles appear enlarged and painful. The animal is hesitant when getting up. It will walk stiffly and with the legs as far away from the painful testicle as possible. This gait is the cause of frequent misdiagnosed cases because the dog is thought to have a back problem or some type of hind leg paralysis
