Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

What tests were done to diagnose this?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No tests yet. She has blood in her urine. This has happened with her before, 3 times.
Expert:  CriticalCareVet replied 6 years ago.
That would NOT be something I recommend.

Azo standard has phenazopyridine as the active ingredient.

In dogs we can see liver damage and muscle damage as a result.

The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center database has received over 300 reports of toxicity due to this medication in dogs.
