Hello, thanks for your question today! I am Dr. Drew, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I'll be happy to help you in any way I can.
If there's bleeding occurring from multiple organ systems (in this case, urinary and respiratory), it suggests that there is likely to be a serious problem occurring internally, such as internal bleeding from ingestion of rat poison, or other blood clotting disorders such as liver disease or cancer.
I would STRONGLY urge you to seek veterinary attention right away, so that blood and urine tests can be done, in order to determine what is going on with Buster. Delaying may lead to this situation becoming critical, and could result in death.
