Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

I am sorry to hear Ranger is having these difficulties. Can you please tell me if he is licking excessively, has increased urination, straining to urinate with only drips or no urination, or increased water intake?

Expert:  Dr. Altman replied 11 months ago.

I apologize if you are having challenges with the site.

If Ranger is urinating a normal stream without dribbling, is not licking excessively, panting, and eating normally monitoring until tomorrow should be just fine but if there are any hesitations please consider the veterinary er exam

The primary concern is ability to urinate and a urinary obstruction and as long as this is not the case there doesn't appear to be an increased urgency to have Ranger seen

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today
