Abstract

ract Balanoposthitis with associated paraphimosis is an uncommon medical emergency in a stallion. Immediate support of the prolapsed tissues in conjunction with associated medical and physical treatments is paramount for a successful outcome. This reliable method of support that can be readily, quickly, easily and inexpensively applied to all cases of prolapsed preputial and penile tissues by a practitioner in the field. This report illustrates a method using a pair of underpants, baler twine and other readily available materials to support the swollen prepuce and penis of four stallions that suffered traumatic injury to their external reproductive organs.
