As far as I know my dog does not have the disease. I read about it in a magazine. However, he does occassionally have some drops of blood coming from his penis but this is usually after he has tried to mount our female who has been spayed.

Hi Mariah

You can Google it. It is a disease brought on by Mosquitos, sandflies.
