Customer Question
He was neutered Tuesday...

He was neutered Tuesday and I noticed just now that he has a little bit of blood in his stream of urine.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Weimaraner

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. What is the Weimaraner's name and age?

He was on Novox for pain but that gave him diarrhea and vomiting so I stopped it. Yesterday afternoon was his last pill

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Weimaraner eat anything unusual?

No, he hasn't had anything unusual and he's acting normal. He is 7 1/2 months old

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the Weimaraner's name?

Atlas

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Atlas?

He was urinating quite a bit last night. He had several accidents during the night which is unusual for him. He has been going quite often since yesterday.

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help with this concern about Atlas.

Please give me a few minutes to type back a response for you. My answers tend to be a tad long, so I'll thank you for your patience. Deb

It sounds as if Atlas may have a urinary tract infection (UTI). Without a urinalysis (and sometimes even with one), we wouldn't know for sure that he does have a UTI but this will be the most common cause for blood to be seen in a dog's urine. I'm not a huge fan of coincidence but UTI's are not typically associated with the type of surgery that he had; I've seen them develop in females after they've been spayed but not usually a male.

These conditions are treated with systemic antibiotics dispensed by a vet; unfortunately, there are no over the counter drugs that will treat them.

It is important to treat these infections since the bacteria that's present can potentially travel to the kidneys and cause significant damage to these organs.

Some owners have found cranberry products such as Craninidin to help reduce the symptoms associated with a urinary tract infection; however, my experience is that they're best used to prevent recurrent issues rather than to treat current ones. But, they are safe and may be something to consider.

Encouraging increased water intake is something I suggest to help flush out the bladder until a urinalysis can be done and appropriate antibiotics started.

I hope this helps, Deb

ok, so do you think this could have possibly come from the neutering? He hasn't been sick or acting abnormal at all.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Deb, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

... so do you think this could have possibly come from the neutering? I think it highly unlikely. I suppose if he didn't urinate as frequently after he was neutered (because he was uncomfortable), then "holding" his urine for a longer period of time might have predisposed him to develop a uti but it's not likely that the surgery itself is responsible.
