Human men and dogs ate NOTHING the same. Their are emotional and psychological consideration when dealing with humans.
If the dog has prostatic hyperplasia, then neutering will fix it. The fog is not going to give a fly his testicles are gone. Enlarged prostates can also cause problem with defecation.
However, at 13, not sure I would go that route. He is pushing the common life span for GSDS as it is.
There are belt bands for dogs, to catch the dribble. You should also be cleaning him multiple times a day, with an unscented baby wipe, and yes Desitin can help with the urine scald. But you need to keep on top of it. Urine scald can be very painful and lead to horrid skin infection.
