see penile prolapse (below).
penile frenulum
see penile preputial frenulum.
penile glans

long hairs from the preputial orifice pack up around the penis of the bull and cause pressure necrosis occasionally creating a hypospadias. Can occur in any species carrying preputial hairs.
penile hematoma
in bulls, in which it is a common event, it is caused by trauma while the bull is mating a cow. It occurs halfway along the penis with an obvious swelling and an inability to breed cows. There is a tear in the tunica albuginea of the corpus cavernosum and a surrounding hematoma.
penile hypoplasia
occurs as part of an intersex deformity or as a sequel to prepubertal castration.
inadequate penile protrusion
due to congenital shortness of the penis, adhesions caused by injury and hematoma, and persistence of the penile frenulum.

common radiological finding in aged dogs; ossification caudal to os penis.

common only in stallions, due to local neurological lesion, or as a rare occurrence after the administration of phenothiazine-derived tranquilizers or severe debility.
persistent penile frenulum
see penile preputial frenulum.

inability to withdraw the penis into the prepuce, other than a paraphimosis. Not to be confused with phimosis; paralysis does occur in disease of the spinal cord, e.g. in some cases of rabies.

the S-shaped bend in the penis of ruminants and pigs, present when the penis is not erect, and the principal mechanism for reducing the length of the organ in these species.
