Current Replies for Breeding problem with my lab stud

I encountered a problem this morning when breeding my labs. The bitch pulled away as soon as the male ejaculated. The male stood for about 10 minutes (seemingly uncomfortable). As his penis retracted, he HOWLED in pain. I have never noted this behavior in 7 years of breeding. My only guess is that he experienced pain due to the very cold conditions they mated in. Despite having a good breeding kennel, it is not heated and the temp outside is below zero. Are we looking at a little frost bite? He appears fine now, but I am worried that damage was done or perhaps I need to get him to a vet. Both dogs are first time breeders, and this was their first "lock up", despite having been together for the past week.

I am sorry, but if in 7 years of breeding, you do not know whether or not you need to take your dog to a vet, and you have to come and make a single post for the first time on an online forum to ask such a question, then personally, i am wondering if you should be breeding????

Well could just be a outside tie.. Happens.. in 7 years one would expect that you would have had seen/heard of them..but while the dog was crying out in pain.. What did you do?

Personally one would expect you would not be making them breed in such a cold area.. BEEN there to stedy both dog and bitch.. OR at the very least.. would have put the male inside in a WARM kennel or the house when the breeding was unsucessfull.. to prevent injury while the erection subsided.. of couse frostbite is possible..

Sorry with 7 years you state of experience.. it seems VERY sloppy and lazy breeding practice..

If you have concerns.. take them to a VET!!! there is no such thing as a LITTLE frostbite.. so I hope this is not the case..
