Hi! I really hope you guys can help me with this my family has always had been a basenji family and currently my dads basenji has been dripping urine from his penis..... this is what happened according to Dad:
About a year and a half ago my 10 yr. old male Basenji, Neo, was having trouble urinating.
I took him to the vet and the Vet used a catheter to unblock his urethra. The urine that came out contained many small crystals. I took him home and the next day the problem started again and he was unable to urinate.
The Vet unblocked him again and I took him home. He was ok for a couple of days, but the problem started again. The Vet checked him and said that unless he operated the obstruction would persist.
After the operation he had a small hole in front of his testicles.
So, he had the normal aperture at the end of his penis, and another 2 or 3 inches toward his testicles that was constantly dripping urine. The doctor said the hole would heal up, but after a year it had not. I asked the doctor if he could close it and he performed a simple operation to do it.
I thought that the procedure would solve the problem. It only made it worse.
He is now constantly dripping urine 24 hrs. a day from his normal penis aperture. The doctor said that there are pills that I can give him for incontinence. Does anyone have experience with this?I am looking for a solution to this problem. And really want to do the right thing so Neo isn’t suffering anymore. Please help! And thank you in advance!
