German Shepherd Dog > Prince's Testicle (18 replies)
by Ruger1 on 24 August 2011 - 16:53
While walking behind Prince today I noticed that it appeared that his testicles were hanging a bit lower then normal. After taking a peek the right testicle looks larger then the left. It does not appear to be painful or uncomfortable with palpation. They both are smooth and and without anything abnormal that I can detect. There is no warmth to the area and he is not having any other symptoms. Prince is 20 months old and intact. Any thoughts? ....Thanks....: )

|I could be wrong, but I think they hang lower in hotter weather, to keep 'em cool. I also don't think they are always even in size. |
He's more than likely fine.

I,m sure he is more then fine, Hell he just got his nuts lovengly messaged!!!! :0)
They do hang lower when it,s hotter to aid in cooling and as long as there smooth there sure to be fine. Worse comes to worse let the vet check him.

Bob...lol I knew that was coming...: )
RS... It is probably nothing.... I just never noticed it before, then again I really dont' go looking around that close ;)....
I will keep an eye on it. Like Bob said, if necessary I will make a vet appointment....: )

|Well I guess if my Rommel gets hot I"ll just tell him to wait till his balls hang down lower and then he will be much cooler. (I am not making light of your concern Deanna) The question just sort of rattled my funny bone.|

Not to make light of the situation either but when I saw the title of the thread my first thought was the singer Prince and it was a little odd to see that combined with the word testicle. They may hang lower for cooling purposes but if you are lovingly massaging them as Bob put it he won't remain cooler for long.

All kidding aside it,s not a bad Idea to give them a semi annual "jingle" for good measure just to check especially as they get older. And it never hurts there attitude!!!

|I agree as pet owners we do have to check our dogs. I have two females so I wont post any potential issues I might have. Thanx for being a good sport Ruger1. I am sure you prefer this thread to cause a lil laughter as opposed to being something seriously wrong with him.|

|Just have to say thanks for the laughs Ruger! I have to chuckle everytime I get on and see the topic Prince's Testicle. Earlier my husband asked what I was laughing at and I said Prince's Testicle is on here. I'm pretty sure he thought I was crazy, and now I'm sure at christmas time everytime I hear Jingle Bells I will be laughing due to the mental pic in my head of Bob!|
