92. Hypersexuality

Cocker Spaniel, Male, 5 years, Not neutered
Blood seen in the urine today
Eats OK, No fever
Why?

History: No previous occurrence

Urine test: Not possible as bladder is not full.

Examination: Penile tip is red and inflamed.

Traumatic injury. Does the dog hump people or objects?
"Yes" the owner said. "He has been humping pillows and the other dog frequently."

The diagnosis is traumatic injury to the penile tips due to hypersexuality.
This condition can be anti-social as visitors do not welcome their legs being gripped by the male dog.

TREATMENT

1. Neuter the male dog.
2. Anti-androgenic injections regularly has been shown to reduce the libido.
