Customer Question
I have a 13...

I have a 13 year old dog who pees on the floor 4 times one day & none the next!! There is red in the blood & our vet says it is protein, what is that & what can we do about it. We have gone through PPA 25mg, An-on 100mg, Clavamox. Naturals I have done cranberry tablets & caneva, can you help me, she does not cry, looks totally healthy. If told she goes outside & pees in the yard. She sometimes just lays & pees wherever she is a when sleeping, not when awake. She is a bishon , is a larger one & weighs about 20 lbs. which is about right for her size. We feed her Blue Diamond with no by-products, she has been on this for 10 years. I believe the protein count is 16%. I so pray you can give us some help because our vet does not seem to be hitting it!!! It would break our hearts to put down a healthy looking dog but we cannot continue these accidents much longer. Thank you for any help you could give us, DESPERATE in Kansas!!!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?

Miley

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Miley?

There has been 2 visits, blood work, & this all he tells us. What is lethargy & do we have options?

Does she seem aware of it? Does she have accidents in her bed? Wet patches where she has been laid down?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No when she wets she does not seem aware, yes we have not let her sleep on the bed for about 4 weeks now. Yes not always but wet patches where she lays is about 1 out of 5. I do not understand the urine is red about 40% of time. Our vet tells us it is protein. Just read we need to give her senior formula food, would that stop this??
