Message 195783 Hard Swollen Sheath

Donna Powell

Ulysses hard swollen sheath....the vet put him on antibiotics...4 dosages of EXCEDE followed by 2 weeks of Doxy (we are 10 days into the Doxy).  She said that the hard swollen part was scar tissue (from inflamation/infection) and the soft swollen was from inactivity.  She further stated that a portion of the hard swelling would not go away and the soft swelling would with antibiotics and excercise.  As to what started the infection...who knows...I keep him clean, but he does have a compromised immune system...It is showing signs of going back to almost normal and he is happier and not resting that left hind leg like he used to.  Hope this helps those who were following.
