Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting 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- Is Cody eating and drinking?
1- Can he stand now?
Please give me a few minutes to type your answer. Thank you.
Friend, it sounds like Cody's inability to urinate is a combination of not being able to stand and/or he has lost the nervous input into the urinary bladder. In this case unfortunately we are limited as to what you can do at home. Cody needs to have a urinary catheter passed through his penis to empty his bladder, this is an emergency; untreated the bladder could rupture or suffer irreversible damage. I would strongly recommend taking him to ER veterinarian. Discuss with ER vet to teach you how to express his bladder at home.
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.
