"It's" sticking out!

Yesterday after a particularly raucous play session, Gryff's penis was sticking out - way more than I've ever seen it. At first it was just sort of funny and gross, but it didn't go back. I went online and discovered that it can actually be a very serious condition requiring immediate surgery! Yikes! I was able to coax it back in myself and all is well now.

I am however worried about it happening again when I'm not around to catch it. Has anyone else ever had this problem or know anything about it? BTW, Gryff is fixed.

I had one do that after a breeding; called the vet and he told me to put ice in a washcloth and hold it there for about 10 minutes. The third time I iced it, it receeded.

Reminds me of the Viagara commercial. They recommend a doc after three hours. Why?

If it's out too long it can cause permenent damage. In humans, that means it doesn't "work" anymore. That's why you need to see a doctor. It's called Priapism.

Be careful with those pills Dave. I have been doing accounting all day and just got done, depressing, and then I sign on and this pops up. I am laughing now.

WD-40 doesn't work? I thought it fixed everything!

Oh, man, I hope that doesn't happen here with my two.

This happened to my Hav (of course during a weekend night). The groomer nicked it. The area got irritated, so he licked it to the point it was sticking out. Luckily, our vet has emergency hours. Called the clinic, and the vet on call told us to get the KY Jelly, rub it on, so it lubricates it, and thus can retract easily. It worked. It happened like 2 times again, not not from the groomer nicking it then, and we used the jelly again. Still worked. Hope this helps.

My Lhasa Boo Boo always would get this when a female in the neighborhood is having a heat, first we try the bag of peas and a cool wash cloth, if that does not work we call the vet who shoots him up with a prednisone type shot. Boo Boo has intervertebral disc disease so this complicates it. Since going on prednisone for his Addison's this has not happened and right now, there are more then a few dogs in the neighborhood in heat, he does still drool, whine, run around restless and if I crate him he rubs the hair off his head licking the crated for hours. He is neutered but was a breeder...my Vet has a sense of humor about Boo Boo's problem "Poor boy just can't get any relief". Boo Boo's case is rare, puppies do this as they are coming in to maturity but it usually only last a short time...it just seems like a long time.
