Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Boomer urinated blood and is not moving his back legs. My primary concern with this history is that Boomer has a urinary tract infection, crystals, tumor, or a stress condition called interstitial cystitis. Can you please tell me if he is able to stand up at all or are his back legs not functional? If you pinched his toes, would he move the foot?
