Hi there,

Thanks for your question regarding your girl. The combination of blood in the urine, bruising of the skin and color splotching makes me very concerned about a possible blood clotting/coagulopathy issue here. Is there any rat poison she could have gotten in to over the last few days? Have you noticed any other symptoms?

I will wait to hear from you.

She does urinate all the time usually, but she is very territorial. As for rat poison, she only goes to the dog park which she has gone to everyday for 2 months now.

She has allergies from food usually but she has been eating this food for a few weeks

Ok - thanks for that. The fact she has a combination of bruising under the skin and blood in her urine is definitely a cause for concern regarding a potential clotting issue. I am typing up a response on a few things you need to keep an eye on to get an idea of whether you need to get her seen tonight or not. I will get back to you in 5 - 10 minutes.
