It's normal for a dog's testicles to turn slightly black in color as they age. However, it is not normal for them to bleed, and therefore I would advise you to take your dog to your local veterinary practice.

A vet will be able to carry out a detailed examination of the dog's genitalia, and hopefully make a diagnosis.

Once this has been done, treatment for your dog can begin straight away.

Unfortunately, your dog will most probably be in a lot of discomfort while it has this problem, so it would be best to get it seen by a vet as soon as possible.

Why are my dog's testicles bleeding and turning black?
I would guess that your dog could be suffering from either of the following:

  • Allergy: Allergies can cause the testicles to be irritated, which then makes your dog scratch them. Persistent scratching may then result in your dog's testicles starting to bleed.
  • Infection: Your dog's testicles may have become infected. If this is the case, then your vet may have to remove them.
  • Trauma: Your dog could have suffered an injury to the testicles.
I would still recommend that your dog should see a vet as soon as possible.

When the dog gets older, their testicles will turn black, and it might be frostbite. If you don't want to breed it any more, maybe it's better to neuter him.

Black testicles in dogs can be normal if there is no swelling. If your dog's testicles are bleeding, then you should look for injuries.

Ideally, a trip to vet will be more helpful in diagnosis and treatment for your dog.
