Urethral prolapse

Prolapse of the distal urethra through the external urethral orifice is uncommonly reported mainly in English bulldogs. Common clinical signs are licking and intermittent haemorrhage, becoming worse at erection. The use of castration and hormonal therapy to prevent erection has been unsuccessful. Surgical excision of the prolapsed tissue and apposition of urethral mucosa to penile tunic with fine sutures is the treatment of choice, especially in cases with severe trauma and necrosis. An urethropexy technique has been recently introduced for an effective and quick surgical treatment of this condition.
I found some information on this website, may be helpful
