10 month old colt cant drop his penis to pee

Hi im after some advice please we have a 10month old tb colt who has a little problem- his penis doesn't drop when he pees or even when he is relaxed/sedated, it just balls up in the sheath and the pee dribbles out and runs down his legs (wich means I have to wash him down everyday ). I have had two different vets look at it and both had a different opinion. One said he needs surgery to fix the problem(the skin in the sheath is preventing it coming out on its own) or I should put him down and the other said to just leave it and it will eventually come out on its own. Has anyone else had a horse with this problem and if so did it require surgery or did it come good on its own? Im from Australia and im not having much luck finding anyone who has had a horse with this problem so hoping to find someone who may be able to give me some advice and hopefully there is someone out there who has had a horse with similar problem.Thankyou

Have no experience at all with this, but read it because I've seen you posted a few days ago & haven't had a reply. Can you get your fingers up there, to feel if there's some sort of obstruction? If he's 10 months old, is this a new problem or been going on since birth? I'd ask for further veterinary opinions.

It was my suggestions in the other thread that they post this question in health section for hopefully more responses. So the double post is probably my fault. I'm sure a moderator could move or delete the first thread if they wanted to.

Too bad no one has any experience with the colt's issue. It must not be a common problem.

Okay. I have no knowledge or experience with this but I do have a few questions.

Did the first vet say what about the skin of the sheath was keeping it from dropping? Did he explain what was happening and why it would not be corrected without surgery?

And did the 2nd vet say WHY he thought the problem could be corrected on its own without surgery? Did he agree with the first vets opinion of diagnosis?

I think a great place to start (though I don't often sugges to do this because it can bring up a variety of information) try googling the issue your first vet mentioned. Sadly it seems as if no one on this particular forum has expeirence with this issue but there might be research articles or something about it. I would read and research as much as I could. If this baby does need surgery, I hate would to keep him waiting and suffering due to lack of information!

I'm at work right now but if you respond with what your vet said the problem was, I'll help you some sleuthing for research articles and the like. We have a great vet school library here at MSU as well. They may also be able to help

Phimosis is fairly rare but is often treatable depending on what is causing the hang up....

Scroll down to phimosis.

It should be fixable with a very simple surgery. If you don't do it, he is most likely going to get urine scalding.

Colt with no willy!

So- I have the same. - or rather my 6 month old colt has. My vet has sedated him and tried to find his penis and he has dropped it down a bit twice under sedation but then it disappears again. I know it was there when he was 3 months old but now its gone. He seems fine in himself but just pees down his sheath! My vet says we just have to wait and see there is no constriction holding it back its just really small and doesn't seem to have grown with the horse. My vet suggested that later we might have to stitch in a tube if he starts to get infections!

We have given anti-inflamatories and must just wait to see what time shows us. - if anyone else has had this and knows what the possible future outcome is please let me know. He was meant for breeding- ha ha! We shall kee him as a pet I think at least for now...

If the penis balls up in the sheath when he urinates that means he is trying to drop it. I agree with the vet who said surgery would fix it, only because something has to be done. My guess is the sheath itself is malformed but it could be just some extra skin anywhere that needs to be snipped.

Before I let any vet do anything I would expect to see at least a drawing of the problem & the proposed fix.
