This answer was rated:

My dog a maltese was neutered when young and now is 6years old. When he lies on his back sometimes not always I notice two small lumps each side of his penis. They are uniform and are at the rear near where his testicles were.

My name is ***** ***** I am a small animal vet with many years experience and rest assured I will do my best to answer your question to your satisfaction today.

Scott Nimmo :

Actually what you are seeing is quite normal, those structures which look like little bumps at the base of the penis are called the bulbus glandii

Scott Nimmo :

They grow in size and then reduce again in response to a dog's sexual urges and are part of what normally happens when a dog has an election.

Scott Nimmo :

I know your dog is neutered but even so you will still see them engorged now and again, but in the neutered dog that is all you will see. As I say no cause for concern...
