I have seen some males that really suck their testicles up to the body but he carries his lower which is probably part of the problem. I give him a dose of Meloxicam to help with this but I want to help prevent this and the next day is is back to normal. I know that the easy fix is to Neuter him but this is not an option. I am going to try Utter Balm or Bag Balm to see if this helps. I am sure I am not the only person with this problem, can any one offer me advice on how to help him.
    My dog used to get this while grouse hunting. Never mind cherry red, they used to bleed from the rough brush we went through that included thorns. I applied the Vaseline before and during the hunt, several times. It helped a lot.

    Gotta claim ignorance on this one. I have one simple rule- If you live with me ya gotta squat to pee. None of my dogs have any problems along this line. As for me - 2 words. Chinchilla underwear!!!

    I would however suggest that you use some discretion as to where and when you apply protective balms to your dogs under gear- some things are hard to explain.

    Jewelry protection is paramount regards

    Not sure there is a way to stop it - my lil girls "eye bones" suffered and would be bleeding after a half a day in thick milo. I too would cake on vaseline before a run....not really sure if it helped or not, but made me feel better.

    My dogs sort've look like cold-war rejects after quail season, usually have a great case of facial hair loss, raw chests, swollen up eyes etc.Taking them to a hunt-test like that is highly entertaining . But for some reason the one thing they know how to take care of are those dangling things in back. I think I'll count myself lucky that I've never have to Vaseline up that area, I wonder how many hits a tape of that would get on you-tube

    Seem to have missed the part where you have to rub it off after hunting

    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

    Not sure.

    Dooley, I did not see anyone in this thread giving any indication that they don't care about their dog.

    John, what's the thing about Rocky Mountain Oysters? Are they fried?
    Yes they are and I have to say, after many years of not wanting any out of principle, I tried them and they reminded me of fried clams and they were good. Bruce's bar in Severenance, CO is a hot spot for fried RMO's

    Had them at DJ's Steakhouse in Pueblo, CO in September. They were really good.
