Maltese Behavior Issue

May 10th, 2006, 07:12 AM
Hi, I have a 2 year old male maltese. He was neutered when he was a puppy, however he always seems to constantly be licking and playing with his penis. Someone told me that he is cleaning himself, but it doesn't seem that way. If I call his attention from it he starts crying like its hurting him and he has to finish what he is doing. Why is he doing this????? :confused:

You should bring him to the vet,he may have an infection and his licking it is only irritating it more.

Good luck:fingerscr

i dont think he has an infection. he's been doing this for almost 2 years since he got neutered. he's either pleasuring himself or really cleaning himself. i need to know if this is a behavioral problem or not. :sad: :confused:
