Customer Question

My dog, 14 years old on several meds including Gabapentin, Meloxicam, and Tramadol. Got up this morning, has tried several times to urinate, but nothing is coming out. He did eat. His belly is very hard and he is panting constantly.

HI this is DR B and I would be happy to help you with this. If he is unable to urinate this is a life threatening medical emergency and you need to get him to the ER now. He needs to have a urinary catheter passed before his bladder explodes and kills him. This is a horrible way for an animal to die. Please take to ER NOW. Thank you, DRB
