Why is my dog licking his testicles raw?

If your dog is licking his testicles to the point where they're becoming red-raw, then you will need to take him to the vet.

Multiple conditions can cause this kind of behaviour inyour dog.

Whereas licking of the testicles is normal while a dog is cleaning himself, it is not normal behaviour for a dog to lick this area until it's red-raw. Evidently something is causing your dog a great deal of irritation.

  • The best advice I can give you is to take your dog to the vet. They will be able to undertake a thorough investigation of the area, and should be able to start treatment for the problem right away.
  • From a very speculative point of view, the licking could be a result of your dog suffering from epididymitis - a condition that affects the testicles and causes them irritation.
Your pet is clearly in a great deal of discomfort so, to prevent the problem becoming worse, it would best to take him to the vet.

Because he has some kind of infection or irritation. He needs to go to a vet.

If you had a bad itch or pain that no one was fixing - you would be miserable. Take your poor dog to the vet - he's probably pretty miserable.
