Hello, this is my first time using this forum. I am going to include pictures below of the red band and some other pictures but they are graphic and wanted to include them at the bottom.
I have a Great Dane/Mastiff puppy I adopted that is 6 months old. I have been dealing with this neon yellow/green discharge since I got him at 3 months old.
When I adopted him he had just been neutered, so I was convinced he had this discharge due to that. But it has continued for months and doctors have said "I have never seen this."
The discharge drips onto the floor all day. It is thin and cloudy. I thought it was pus but the doctors have been calling it discharge. My general vet said first it was normal smegma, next appointment I was given Amoxiclav because it was pink/brown and she noticed small raised red bumps. That same day she also flushed the area. At first I noticed improvement, but 3 days later he had stopped eating and drinking. I let this go on for 3 more days but on Labor day his p*nis was extremely swollen and I took him to emergency vet.
The emergency vet said "I have never seen this before" and showed me a picture she took of the base of his prepuce. It was a very swollen red band and she thought it might be TVT. Cytology came back NORMAL, stating no infection nor cancer. I followed up with my vet who reviewed this report. She recommended me to a specialist and we did two flushes with a steroid topical until I got into the internal medicine doctor the following week. It was assumed to be inflammation at this point and after these flushes he had not dripped for a full week and two days.
I have spent so much money at the vet at this point, and so much time sitting at the vet hoping for an answer or a cure. I drove far for this specialist who sat in the room with me for 2 minutes maybe less and said she would offer me an estimate. The estimate was $2,800+ to get bloodwork, ultrasound, and scope. I feel she didn't even listen to the issues and said she was more concerned about him not eating or drinking much. I told her my main focus was the prepuce issue and asked what tests would be essential to us figuring this out. She basically said she couldn't promise that she would find an answer to the cause of this. I left without having anything done to my puppy and I am feeling so sad he is being violated and having to go to the vet SO often! I feel so sad for him lol he is so good and sweet. Possibly related to his breed and being young, but he sleeps a ton and acts like he is struggling after a walk not even 500 feet.
I need help please! I am so defeated.
