|The dog was initially treated surgically with cranial advancement of the prepuce, which did not resolve the problem.
Further surgery was then successfully carried out to create a more caudal preputial orifice, which angled the penis ventrally when extruded, directing urine away from the body.
At follow-up clinical examination, the dog was clinically normal.
