Friend, when we see blood in the urine of a male dog this can be caused by many different medical conditions. It will be difficult for me to determine the exact underlying cause without a hands on examination and some testing. But, common causes are: A urinary tract infection, bladder stones, kidney or prostate disease or even part of a systemic disease, etc. to name a few causes.
To determine the exact underlying cause Tyson will need a hands on examination, blood work, urinalysis and xrays as initial screening test. Unfortunately not much I can recommend for you to try at home that would have a significant therapeutic benefit. Treatment for Tyson will be based on exam and test results. For example, if this is related to an infection he will need antibiotics. If cost is a concern I would look into your local ASPCA or Shelter where they often offer veterinary services at a lower cost.
