dog in pain

i have a 4 yr old doberman. he is usually running around and playing outside. he is very hyper. today though he is just laying around moping. he is walking hunched over. we look at his private area, and it looks swollen, not on erection. it doesn't look like he has been bitten. any other advice?

It could be the anal glands, sometimes they get blocked up. They are located below the anus at a 4:00 ang 6:00 position. Have your veterinarian check to see if there is an infection or maybe they need expressing. Beyond that I do not know what to suggest, it is difficult to diagnose via the internet. Sorry I can't be of more help but if you have concerns please see your veterinarian.
