Over the last two days I have noticed Gillie has a lump by his willie. It is about 1cm in diameter, soft, doesn't hurt when I feel it and it seems to be loose beneath the skin. If it were on me I'd be tempted to give it a jolly good squeeze as it feels like a large spot or a boil but obviously being where it is I don't think he would appreciate it! How long would you leave a lump like this before getting a vet to look at it? I don't want to be a paranoid owner but then I don't want to ignore something I should be getting treated.

It doesnt look anything like Marley's lump and is probably nothing, but I would definitely get a vet to look at it. It was only because of Tracy's quick actions in taking Marley to the vet that means it hopefully wont come back and he will have a happy, long life with us.

Sorry, my brain has gone dead! I cannot remember what's there! I'm getting too old!! But I'm pretty sure it's nothing to cause you worry, but saying that, i'd get it checked out to be sure.

Can I ask is it there all the time or just sometimes, as when my boys are on their backs having tummy rubs or playing they get little lumps either side and years ago when i first saw it with my terrier I was concerned and looked a bit silly going to the vets to be told its a boy thing happens when they are playing or excited and happy. :lol:

Hope its nothing to worry about,

John I hope its not this mornings call thats has caused you trouble lol.

Mac has one each side of his. Sometimes they are more visible than at other times. If there is one each side and they are the same size I wouldn't worry.

I think I remember hearing/reading somewhere that they are to do with the locking on process during doggie intercourse!

No, he has the two lumps either side but they are lower down closer to his plums! This one is near the tip. Having had a closer look, there looks like there may be a tiny hole so perhaps it is a splinter. I think I'll get it checked tomorrow to put my mind at rest. It can't be normal to be examining a puppies parts this closely and this frequently!!

Oh believe me, it is for dog people! It all goes hand in hand with examining poo! :lol:

Not at all. I'm always happy chatting dogs. :) Just glad to be of help. The concept is not easy to grasp.

Regards, John

I could do my specialist subject on Mastermind on his poo. It is always examined for consistency as we are trying to figure out what upsets it and what is ok. My life is nothing if not glamorous at the moment!

Just think, a non dog person, thinking about a first dog, coming here and reading a few posts on such things as poo and gippy tummy, would run screaming to the hills shouting "NEVER!!!!! I must have been mad to even think about it"

I was thinking the two lumps that are used during mating but as you say its near the tip of his penis I don`t think its that, I`d get a vet to have a look at it just to be on the safe side, hopefully its something harmless and will go away on its own :)

Well Gillie and his lump are off to see the nice vet at 2.50pm. I'll let you know what they say :)
