Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.
What does the discharge look like? Were any antibiotics given? Is your dog neutered?
Okay, sorry for the delay.
This could be a case of an infection in the penis itself, or a urinary tract infection, or a case of prostatitis (infection in the prostate). Steroids is not an approriate way to treat any of those, so I recommend seeing a veterinarian to get on a course of antibiotics. That would be the best way to resolve this. There isn't much you can do to treat this at home without antibiotics due to the location. Sounds like it is making him pretty uncomfortable since he is not eating and unsteady on his back legs, so I would see a vet soon. Maybe the vet you saw before would prescribe antibiotics over the phone without having to see him again... give them a call.
I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you. Thank you for your question; it has been a pleasure being able to provide assistance. Bonuses are not necessary, but are appreciated, as they go directly to me rather than to the website. Best of luck.
Any updates for me? Have you seen a vet again? Just checking in...
I am so sorry to hear this! I recommended you see a veterinarian soon to get on antibiotics, and I told you it was inappropriate to have treated with a steroid. I am not sure what else I could have told you, but the purpose of this site is not to replace an actual veterinary exam. I am so sorry for your loss.
I just tried calling you and no one answered. I will try again a bit later.
The number you gave the website is 441692652211. I am not allowed to dial you, it must go through the site itself. You will need to change your contact info through the site before I can call you.
I understand, and I hope that you find peace with regard to his death. Take care.
