This morning my husband noticed our 11 month old boxer puppy had a bit of a bloody discharge that came from his penis. Later today I checked he has always had a bit of a yellowish discharge but again he had blood around his penis I cleaned it off and looked for a cut and couldnt really see anything. Should I be worried?

You should call your vet up , my dog had blood in his urine and he had crystals and needed to take meds. I had to stop feeding Marty any dog food that had yeast or grains in it. He been doing a lot better now. Has you puppy been for check up since you had him?

I'm with barkingdog on this one. Call your vet and describe what's going on. They may want to see you right away, but they may say watch the pup for a day longer before bringing it in.

I agree with both above. A bit of light yellowish discharge can be normal for a male dog but if you never noticed it before and if you see blood at least phone your Vet. My own boy has just finished a ten day course of antibiotic for a UTI. Something that helped me was to check the snow every time he pee'd, and I saw blood in the snow. Once it was solid, bright red, very scary. He's all better right now.
One thing your Vet will probably want is a urine sample. Take this first thing in the morning, his first pee after being in all night. You might find a helper necessary. One of you walk him on leash, the other slips a clean container (soup ladle works really well) into the stream of urine to collect it. Place in clean glass jar with lid and refrigerate if you can't get to the Vet till later in the day. Bleach soup ladle. Or buy a new one. :)
