That is very strange, and I agree a vet. Could be infection, hernia ... I really have no idea. Glad he's peeing well, though, eek!

You can feel if its a hernia. If its on the inside pushing the skin out like that then not a hernia. If its all soft and squishy, then its most likely a hernia. If it is a hernia its the biggest one I have ever seen. They only get worse with time. That is alot of gut to put back in if it is a hernia.
