If Jake is intact (not neutered), acute prostatitis is the most important consideration when such hematuria (blood in the urine) or frank bleeding is seen from the penis. This is best addressed by neutering and two weeks of an antibiotic that penetrates well into the prostate gland such as trimeth sulfa and enrofloxacin. Less commonly, a simple urinary tract infection or trauma to the urinary tract will cause such bleeding.
