Found this ......  Meloxidyl 1.5mg/ml oral suspension for dogs is a Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug (NSAID), which is used to help manage arthritis in dogs as well as acting as a pain relief for those who suffer from chronic (long-term) or acute (short-term) musculo-skeletal disorders such as sprained muscles. Meloxidyl is also used in a number of other diseases and illnesses to alleviate inflammation and reduce any pain that your dog is suffering from. It is often used as a post-operative pain relief to help reduce any pain and discomfort.

Probably meloxaid. Same as Metacam.

Could be a surge in male hormones ...what with spring and the girls in the air

I would think an enlarged prostate more likely if it's persisting. They can burst blood vessels on the penis, but it doesn't normally last long. Or, of course, a UTI.

thanks everyone,sorry for the delay in replying,just an update,all blood loss has stopped,and he seems fine now,the treatment mustve worked.but i ll tell his owner it might be enlarged prostrate,he s pretty good about whipping him to the vet at the first sign of anything wrong,anyway,just,fingers crossed it doesnt happen again.thanks,

Great that it seems to have resolved :smile:

Prostate will almost certainly have crossed the vet's mind/been checked as blood from the penis is commonly associated with those sorts of problems, so I'm sure the vet has a handle on things :smile:

Fingers crossed for your friend that that's the end of it.
