My 6 year old paralyzed doxie has started getting these huge erections where it comes out of the sheath. The few times it has happened before, I have been able to put him in a cool tub of water & it would go down. Then I used KY to get it back in. Is there a long term solution for this problem? It is getting harder to handle this as it is getting more often. Thank you! Tara.
This can be a reflex that gets upregulated with time. There are medications I would want to try first before trying any type of penile surgery.
I would want to try medical management with a benzodiazepine (like Valium) first.
