Hello

A few weeks ago Graham had a very unusual problem that nobody seemed to be able to help, it was ulcers all over his willy which I wrote about on here. Anyway thankfully the vet on his 2nd appointment pulled out something that looked like a sperm rod but it was quite big. He seems much better and isn't on antibiotics nor Metacam anymore. He is not squealing in pain anymore when he wees thank God but when I looked today his willy (the outside part )is still quite lumpy & bumpy and he always seems to have stringy hair sticking out of his bum. I was wondering if anyone can recommend anything to clean him better there (I am using salt water and before it was Hibiscrub) or any cream to make him feel nicer down there as its a bit stinky too! Whereas Roger his brother is all neat & tidy there and does not smell.

Thank you so much!

Hi

Glad that you could get to the bottom of the problem!

Please express the penis fully and check for any more sperm fluid or a build up of smegma. Be aware that too frequent cleaning can actually stimulate the overproduction of oils and gunk; that is why using too much creams and products can become counterproductive.

Some boars are messier than others (age also plays a role, especially with the production of semen fluid) so you will have to work out the best balance for your boys. In many cases, a simple bum bath with plain elbow test warm water is best as it doesn't upset the microbiome as much.

Have a look at our boar care guide: Boar Care: Bits, Bums & Baths
