Question Leaky "faucet"

Brew's penis is a little wet with pee sometimes and it also occasionally leaks a tinsy amount (maybe a drop or two will come out.) I'm wondering if this is normal for a male chi that is approximately 1.5 years old? I believe he was neutered within the last 3 months, if that makes a difference.

Brody's is dry. Can't speak for all dogs as to what is normal though but Brody is very clean down there. I've never seen or felt drops coming out. I wonder if Brew might have a little urinary tract infection? I don't think leaking is normal.

It can be a urethra blockage. My chow had it he was younger so I assumed UTI, had he been elderly I would have thought old age but because he was just a young guy I was concerned he had an infection. I took him to the vet and she said it was good I didn't ignore it because they can be very troublesome if left unattended.

I remember at the time I had to walk him often ~ we did a lot of walking I was pregnant with my first who turns 23 this December but I still remember Cheech having this. And I remember she gave me a solution in a bottle that I had to clean the area with several times a day.

I'm not saying that is what your dog has, I just know the above is what I dealt with a chow 20 some years ago. We've never had a dog in the family since then that had that, nor have any of the neighbors so I am guessing it isn't very common.

Because of what I dealt with though, I would advise you to call your vet and have him looked at.

Never had small drops of wee, but my giant breeds have always had a bit of a discharge that they spend a lot of time cleaning, especially the entires (non-neutereds).

He spends a decent amount of time cleaning, but nothing beyond normal, I don't think. Do you think it was because Brew was fixed a little later on?

I looked up symptoms for both upper and lower UTI's and he doesn't seem to have any, except for the occasional dampness/drops of pee. Of course, that could be his only symptom.

It could be from neutering at too young an age if you're not sure when he was neutered or uti. I would definitely have him checked out.

I checked his paperwork and he was neutered within the last 6 months. We just moved here so are currently searching around for a decent vet to take him to, which we plan to do very soon.
