Health question about my Yorkie...
I had my 9 month Yorkie (Sparky) groomed, & noticed he kept licking his penile area. I saw the round opening where his penis comes out, with a tiny split. Like a small cut, that he keeps licking. & his testicles look like they have a small rash. Is the outer opening of his penis supposed to be completely round ? Or do some have a tiny split ? The penis area doesn't look infected, but his testicles look like they have a small rash. I'm afraid the groomer might have cut the hair around his genital area a little to close for comfort...
I applied some bacterial ointment on the rash, on his testicles... I put a cone around his head, so he won't be able to lick the area... Hopefully this should help heal the rash... I'm still a little concerned about the outer opening of his penis... Any comments or suggestions are very much appreciated...

How is this kiddo? If truly inflamed, I'd have a vet see it asap bc it could be very painful.

The sheath opening is not round usually. It can vary. Unless you are seeing blood/scabbing it is probably just the shape of the opening. Can you take a photo?
It does sound like he's got a little bit of razor burn. Just keep him off it. A little neosporin may help a lot to soothe it but otherwise just let it be- it will heal on its own.
