Hi,

 

Welcome to Just Answer. How long ago was Kyla hit by the truck? How is she acting at this time?

Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Today at about 4pm mtn time, and she seemed fine
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Bruce, Veterinarian replied 6 years ago
Is she bright and alert? Breathing normal? Eating and drinking? Was her urination normal prior to this incident?

She was fine
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Bruce, Veterinarian replied 6 years ago
So, the only problem at this point is the blood in the urine? Is she straining? Did she urinate a good amount?

She didn't appear to be straining
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
She went a good amount
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Bruce, Veterinarian replied 6 years ago
OK. It actually isn't' that uncommon for a post hit by car dog to have some blood in their urine due to the trauma. When the hit / trauma occurred, it could have banged up the bladder and caused a small amount of bleeding into it. You won't see this until they urinate. As long as she's comfortable, eating well, drinking well, urinating good amounts, and not having abdominal enlargement - most likely this needs a couple days to flush out and it won't be an issue. If any of the previous is seen, she should be re-evaluated by your vet as there may be a more serious injury to the kidneys, ureters, bladder or urethra.

What else should I be looking for?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Bruce, Veterinarian replied 6 years ago
I would look for weakness, collapse, increased respiratory effort, pain, not being able to urinate, not eating and drinking.
