Vet Diary - Sorry State

We see all sorts here at the kennels at Coxhoe. This sweet dog was brought in with a rather embarrassing problem. We have no way of knowing how this injury was caused, but it was rather alarming to see the large split in his prepuce. This was months if not years old, and the skin had become stretched over time and was hanging down, with urine dribbling out of both the "normal" hole in the skin and also the large slit that had formed.

Although he was able to pass urine, it was rather off-putting for this poor dog, and the way the flow of urine was diverted greatly increased the chance of infection. Surgery was really the only option.

Thankfully the operation went well, and less than a week after such delicate surgery, our lad is having no trouble with his waterworks.

What a relief! Our vets not only perform life-saving surgery, they can also fix "Embarrassing Bodies"!
