Dog Smegma After Neutering

As dog owners, we’ve all experienced the grossest things imaginable for a pet owner. From diarrhea on the carpet, vomit on the couch, stinky anal glands, and more – we’ve all been there. But do you know how to clean dog smegma? Or do you have any idea what it is in the first place? In this post, I will delve into this grooming task together with all the basic facts you need to know.

How do you clean smegma off a dog?

Pour a generous amount of vinegar directly onto the pet stain. Be sure to thoroughly soak the stain. Next, pour a much smaller amount of baking soda onto the stain (be sure to follow this order). You’ll hear the solution working its magic right away!

The basic anatomy of a dog’s penis

On the outside of your dog’s penis you’ll find the prepuce (or sheath as it’s commonly known) — the skin and other tissues that surround the penis when non-erect. You’ll find that a healthy penis is usually bright pink or red. This is caused by the mucous membrane which covers it. Sometimes, at the end of your dog’s penis at the opening to the prepuce, a small amount of yellowish or green-tinged discharge can collect. This is smegma, and it’s perfectly normal in healthy dogs.

Does dog smegma go away after neuter?

It virtually eliminates the gooey discharge that is usually found at the end of the penis of intact adult males. Neutering is also best for your dog’s behavior.


Is it normal for a neutered dog to have discharge?

One of the best ways to prevent smegma is to neuter your dog, as this will decrease the amount of discharge produced. You could also try looking for a supplement containing green tea, which has antibacterial properties that can stave off infection.

Does neutering reduce smegma?

A small amount of yellow-white or slightly green-tinged discharge from the end of the prepuce is also normal. If you notice changes to the coloration of your dog’s prepuce, penis, or preputial discharge, make an appointment with your veterinarian to rule out infections, injuries, and other conditions.

Why is my dog producing so much smegma?

Intact males will produce larger amount of smegma (an oily discharge from the penis). All of this is prevented by the simple act of spaying or neutering.
