Hi, my male pit bull has started bleeding from his penis again

This answer was rated:

Hi, my male pit bull has started bleeding from his penis again after taking his antibiotics like he was supposed to. Hi has been off of them for 2 days. What could this be. We have been on unemployment for over a year now and are very broke, but we do not want him to suffer or lose him. We have had him since he was 2 days old. He is like our child. Please could someone advise us of what we need to do or if there is a home remedy available. He was on chloramphenicol 750 twice daily. Thank you so much for your time in this matter.
Thank yo for your post!

When you saw your veterinarian, what tests were done?

Urinary test
Excellent - this way I know where to start!

Regarding blood in the urine, common causes for this include:
- Urinary tract infection
- Bladder Stones
- Urinary Crystals

Less common causes would include:
- Tumor in the bladder
- Clotting problem

These are the most common causes although other rare causes exist.

If your dog is doing ok otherwise, I would make an appointment for your veterinarian to re-examine your pup.

We need to consider other tests such as an x-ray to see if there are bladder stones.

I hope this helps!
