Thanks for your question regarding your girl. The combination of blood in the urine, bruising of the skin and color splotching makes me very concerned about a possible blood clotting/coagulopathy issue here. Is there any rat poison she could have gotten in to over the last few days? Have you noticed any other symptoms?
I will wait to hear from you.
Ok - thanks for that. The fact she has a combination of bruising under the skin and blood in her urine is definitely a cause for concern regarding a potential clotting issue. I am typing up a response on a few things you need to keep an eye on to get an idea of whether you need to get her seen tonight or not. I will get back to you in 5 - 10 minutes.
