Dog ate small amount of styptic powder, now has bloody urine. Is this related?
Hello, and thanks for your question.

The information I have, says it may cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation (I would assume that's if a larger amount is ingested). No mention of bloody urine.
Bloody urine can be caused by urinary tract infections, bladder stones, growths in the bladder, or extreme kidney problems, or clotting problems.
I would recommend having your dog examined by your veterinarian so they can determine the cause for the bloody urine, and thereby start appropriate treatment.

I hope this helps.

Very quick and informative response. Even the vets I was able to call didn't give me the symptoms associated with ingesting styptic powder. Thanks so very much!
You're welcome - glad to help. Good luck.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!
