I am sorry that you are having this problem with your dog. In response to your question, there are many different medical conditions that would cause a male to urinate or drip blood. It will not be possible for me to pinpoint the exact underlying cause without a hands-on examination and some testing, I am sorry. But, common causes are urethritis (inflammation of the urethra), bladder stones, kidney or prostate disease, a urinary tract infection, etc. to name a few causes. To determine the exact underlying cause he will need to have a urinalysis, X-rays and blood work by your family veterinarian. Treatment will be determined by exam and test results. If he stops or is unable to urinate, that is an emergency; he may have a stone blocking the outflow of urine in the urethra, at that point have him checked by ER veterinarian. Otherwise, follow up with your family veterinarian for the above test. 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.
