Black Spot on Dog Penis with Excessive Licking

For the past 24 hours, my 30 lb dog has been obsessively licking his penis. It has a black spot on it (embarrassed to say I'm not sure if its always been there or not; don't recall it). Wakes up licking, stops walking to lick....unusual behavior. Hard to distract him. A bit of fluid from it (doesn't appear bloody). Trauma to his penis or a cancer?

Seems to be urinating without a problem (always been a dog who pees a bit everywhere wo fully emptying his bladder). Not lethargic and good appetite. No other symptom except licking and the black.

From the photos you sent, the black spot is either a scab or a growth. I advise you take him in to a veterinarian for an exam. A holistic veterinarian would be best, as more 'natural' treatment methods would be healthier for your dog, depending on what they find.

You may need to place an E-Collar on him in the meantime, to prevent more trauma to the tissue. Soft E-collars, (Trimline), are more comfortable, and will still work to prevent him from licking it. Use hydrogen peroxide to clean it one to two times daily.
