Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Hello, again, my name is***** will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- How old is your dog?
2- Any pre existing medical conditions?
3- Any other symptoms?
Thank you for answering my questions. Please give me 5-10 minutes to type your answer.
I am sorry that you are having this problem with your dog. In response to your question, there are many different medical conditions that would cause a male to urinate or drip blood. It will not be possible for me to pinpoint the exact underlying cause without a hands-on examination and some testing, I am sorry. But, common causes are urethritis (inflammation of the urethra), bladder stones, kidney or prostate disease, a urinary tract infection, etc. to name a few causes. To determine the exact underlying cause he will need to have a urinalysis, X-rays and blood work by your family veterinarian. Treatment will be determined by exam and test results. If he stops or is unable to urinate, that is an emergency; he may have a stone blocking the outflow of urine in the urethra, at that point have him checked by ER veterinarian. Otherwise, follow up with your family veterinarian for the above test. I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
