My vet is still adamant that cleaning the sheath is useless. Clean only the penis, and the bean, and only with warm water. I'm still not sure I agree with him.
He said Yankee's penis was filthy (yes, I know! That's a week after the last cleaning - he wasn't perfectly clean but wasn't horrible then!) and that he only had two small beans (I was able to remove two small ones last week). He did find what might be an injury (or something worse (!) he's not sure yet) on the shaft which might be causing the swelling I saw. He thinks it might be a bruise caused by the syringe I use to get warm water deep in.
I've been using the syringe for a while, with great results. However, if I caused an injury with it - never going to use it again.
Yankee's perfect in pretty much every way. Just wish he wasn't such a smegma factory!
